Analyze This

BBB.5

(out of 5)


Strong comedy directed by Harold Ramis about a mobster () who decides that the best way to overcome his overwhelming feelings of anxiety when performing gangland hits is to consult a psychiatrist () and work his feelings out. Eventually, they become friends, and the hilarity from two completely disparate worlds clashing is cheerfully wrought out by the script (co-written by Kenneth Lonergan).  has a delicious supporting role as Crystal’s fiancee, and Ramis steers the project clear of the usual cliches of this kind of comedy, creating a work that is pure pleasure and more than mild distraction.
