As expected: scarce

Another sequel on the market, another disappointment. It is not something totally new, but the fact that De Niro keeps playing in such movies is quite sad. I don't think he is really made for comedies, and if he is, then for no more than one. His type of character is quite clear and I wonder now how another sequel, to a good comedy, "Meet the Fockers" will be like. I sincerely doubt it will be good.

Spoilers

The story is quite predictable...There is De Niro, a mobster (the one we know from the first film- Paul Vitti) who has to spend some time behind bars...but it so happens that he escapes with the help of his doctor, Ben Sobol( Billy Cristal), and exactly as in the first movie he gives him a very hard time. And so the story starts...

The movie hasn't got an interesting plot, but it should've had many funny moments. Unfortunately these were quite missing, not totally, but I didn't laugh as much as I should've. The humor is dry, and not funny. The only question really was, how much they could squeeze out of all the mafia parodies. The answer: not much.

The actors lost their charm too, and neither De Niro, nor' Crystal gave the movie an exciting tempo. It was slow, despite lasting around one hour and a half, and the rest of the characters where poorly modeled on the screen. There were much to few interesting moments in this film.

If you want to see a good parody about the mafia, I would recommend "Mickey Blue Eyes", which I personally enjoyed very much! Or you could watch the first part to this sequel if you haven't seen it, because it is definitely better. Or if you want a comedy with De Niro just watch "Meet the Parents". All of these movies have more charm than this one. a cold 5.5/10

bad premise from the start

Ben Sobel (Billy Crystal) is attending his hated father's funeral with wife Laura (Lisa Kudrow) when he gets a call from Paul Vitti (Robert De Niro) in prison. Ben is brought in to treat Paul. Apparently, Paul has gone temporarily insane after a few assassination attempts. The authority releases him into Ben's care. Of course, Paul is faking it and the cops are not actually buying it. They released him to get at the warring mob families. Jelly is back to serve Paul who suspects mob black widow Patti LoPresti (Cathy Moriarty).

The premise is unrealistic at best. Even if the cops are in on the release, it's crazy that Ben would not run away screaming. The premise is bad and it goes down an even worst avenue as Paul tries to find a job. It's stupid. I can think of a myriad of different paths to go with a sequel. This is not one of them. Ben could have gone to prison for something and this could be a prison movie. Paul could escape and take Ben hostage. This movie is bad concept from the start and none of it is funny. I'm not a big fan of the first movie. I do like Niro and Crystal as performers but it's sad to see them in this.

Analyze the Screenplay.

Analyze That (2002): Dir: Harold Ramis / Cast: Robert De Niro, Billy Crystal, Joe Viterelli, Lisa Kudrow, Cathy Moriarty: Inferior sequel to Analyze This, which searched of the trauma of the Robert De Niro character. This time out regards current issues that plague the psychiatrist including the recent death of his father and the release of De Niro into his custody. De Niro claims that attempts were made on his life in prison and he fakes insanity singing songs from Hollywood musicals. Same setup with a formula agenda but a pleasant dismiss. Director Harold Ramis creates the same witty humour. He usually creates comedies with some sort of social message such as Caddyshack and National Lampoon's Vacation. De Niro once again finds the right note for humour and his role is written in an upbringing as well as his sincerity is tested. Billy Crystal comes to terms with aspects of his own life as well as closure with De Niro. Joe Viterelli as De Niro's closest friend in crime is given little to do, which is unfortunate given that he stole his scene in the first film. Lisa Kudrow as Crystal's wife has little screen time and she seems only there as a prop for the Crystal role. Cathy Moriarty co-starred with De Niro in the boxing masterpiece Raging Bull. Now they co-star in this unworthy sequel. This is a pointless sequel but if viewers enjoyed the much better Analyze This, then perhaps they may dare to analyze this as well. Score: 5 / 10
