*A1: Analyze This (1999) rd niro b crystal l kudrow
Who ever heard of a tough Mafia boss having an emotional breakdown... and crying, to boot! Well, that's the premise of this zany comedy about just such a happening, and the consequences for the poor analyst who is picked to work with him are devastating. Especially since this psychiatrist is about to be married... a fact that doesn't seem to enter into the Mafia guy's consideration, for whenever he feels a need to talk, that's when the analyst must be yanked away... one time right from the altar, literally. But there's more, for during this time the Mafia is doing a lot of jockeying to come up with a new Don and this makes the need to 'cure' the emotionally distressed boss all the more urgent and definitely secretive.

Feigning mental deficiency to get out of the impenetrable Sing Sing prison, the unrepentant mob boss, Paul Vitti, is now released into the custody of his favourite psychiatrist, Dr Ben Sobel. Still having unresolved issues to deal with, the good doctor reluctantly accepts to pick up where they left off after his idiosyncratic relationship with Paul in Analyze This (1999), forced to make his conflicted patient a proper model citizen. Once more, there is yet another pressing deadline, so that the dangerous don is ready before his parole hearing. Indeed, this is one of the most difficult cases in Dr Sobel's entire career. Can he analyse that?
