Harold Ramis' Analyze This is a remarkably mediocre
A psychiatrist (Billy Crystal) takes on a
new patient (Robert De Niro) who happens to be a mob boss and who quickly
disrupts his analyst's life.
I cannot think of anything particularly
negative to say about Analyze This, nor can I think of much for which I
can praise it. The acting and writing are both competent. The production values
are fine, and the movie is never boring. On the other hand, I was not impressed
by the performance of any actor. I never laughed at the humorous incidents of
the film, and I was never moved by the beauty of the sets, costumes, staging,
or cinematography. Distinguished neither by being bad or good, Analyze This
is, ultimately, a forgettable if competently made film. It is a perfect
example of mediocrity.
