Analyze This

Analyze This ★★★

Obviously the saving graces of this film are De Niro and Billy Crystal. And Lisa Kudrow, of course. She’s a national treasure. Though I feel like De Niro’s comedic performance here outshines the others, partially due to just the way the script was written.

I really wanted to like this a lot more, and I was expecting to just because of the talent that was involved. But unfortunately this just kinda falls flat way more than it sticks the landing. Don’t get me wrong, there’s definitely a handful of genuinely good jokes in here to enjoy. But the rest makes for somewhat of a stale watch.

Plus the music in this is kinda awful, too. It’ll be the only thing you’ll be able to focus on in some scenes. It’s either SUPER fucking loud, completely wrong for the particular scene it’s in, or both. 

But hey. De Niro’s funny. And at the end of the day, that’s really all that matters.
