A complete surprise, ANALYZE THIS hits you from the get go with remarkably funny characters juxtaposed against the grim reality of mob life ... to an extent.

Crystal plays a shrink who inadvertantly gets the task of analyzing Deniro, and the results that ensue are hilarious. Several nice cameos add to the pleasure of watching this comedy again and again.
