In this sequel comedy, New York mob boss Paul Vitti (Robert De Niro) is imprisoned in Sing Sing, where he fluctuates from a nearly catatonic state to singing songs. His former psychotherapist, Dr. Ben Sobel (Billy Crystal), arrives to examine Vitti and determine if he’s faking his condition in an attempt to escape. Vitti is released from prison on the condition that Sobel maintains custody of him. Sobel attempts to help Vitti with his mental state so that he can get a legitimate job outside of the mob, but Sobel’s patience is tested when Vitti continues to hang around his mob friends.
This sequel is even more vulgar than the original, “Analyze This” (1999). Much of the humor is cruel and demeaning and draws little laughter from viewers. The plot of “Analyze That” is entertaining, but it cannot be Dove approved because of the sexual content, violence and continuous bad language.
