More Info:
  • Mick LaSalle

    More than a high concept stretched to feature length. This is a funny and extremely satisfying comedy, the best in a while.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Crystal turns in his best (read: least sappy) performance in ages, getting through an entire movie -- most of it, anyway -- without mugging.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Ramis has made a fleet, unself-conscious, eminently enjoyable picture, where one-liners carom merrily like stray bullets, and where there's casual ease, like the drape of a sharpster's trousers, in the rapport between its two stars. Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Watching De Niro take Paul through his first panic attack ("I'm crying like a woman") is an unalloyed joy.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    A funny, tightly plotted, well-conceived comedy that transcends both Crystal's '90s curse and its horrible title.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Elvis Mitchell

    As he demonstrated in "Groundhog Day," Ramis knows how to handle a high-concept story with unusual cleverness, and he does it again here. It helps to no end that De Niro and Crystal, despite their obvious differences, are perfectly in tune.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Rita Kempley

    Ramis...does extract every last yuk from this lively clash of id and superego, this spoofy buddies' odyssey from underworld to Prozac nation.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • David Denby

    You can see the jokes coming well in advance, but you still laugh uncontrollably.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    The comedy here isn't all on the surface, and Viterelli [the bodyguard Jelly] is one reason why.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    It's the most liberated and alive [DeNiro]'s been since his deluded Rupert Pupkin tried to kidnap Jerry Lewis in "King of Comedy."

    San Francisco Examiner Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Frequently funny and occasionally hilarious.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    It's still possible to have a good time at this movie, and the primary reason is De Niro.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Andrea C. Basora

    There are some moments that fall flat—the cinematic world might be a better place without Crystal's deeply unfunny parody of a gangster—and the delightful Lisa Kudrow is woefully under-used.

    Newsweek Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Its structure is repetitive, but each scene begins with a joyous blast of comic energy...A hoot.

    Slate Full Review
  • Bill Gallo

    Analyze This won't win any Oscars, and its comedy is pretty tortured in places, but the pleasures of watching DeNiro onscreen never diminish--not even when he's putting the glories of his criminal past at risk.

    New Times (L.A.) Full Review
  • Russell Smith

    As enjoyable as it is, it's hard to escape a sense of Analyze This being the work of competent talents who knew exactly where the good-enough line was and didn't feel particularly inspired to push far beyond it.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Sandra Contreras

    Though not much about the film sticks with you, it's a reliable piece of fluff that delivers the goods.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    Ramis doesn't reach the comic heights of his "Groundhog Day," but the acting is excellent and the screenplay offers some hearty laughs if you can stand bursts of violence and language as foul as a Mafioso's business agenda.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Tom Meek

    Analyze This plays "The Godfather" bit, fast and funny, it just picked a framework it should have refused.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • J. Hoberman

    Enjoyable but slight— an intermittently funny, one-joke vaudeville.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    The gradual dilution of fresh humor is further undercut by a queasy sense that the picture, in the end, is quietly endorsing all the psychoanalytical mumbo jumbo that it has been poking fun at all along.

    Variety Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    A pretty woeful affair...a sitcom disguised as a movie.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    Watching Ramis struggle with his two stars is like watching someone try to juggle lead weights.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Lisa Alspector

    This blunt comedy suffers from poor pacing, colorless dialogue, and subpar performances by the two leads that reveal just how much a director contributes to our perception of what a star is.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Peter Brunette

    Sure, the territory is not exactly fresh...but the chemistry between the two leads is so explosive yet assured, and the comic timing so perfect, that the cliches are given new life. Full Review
