"ONE OF THE FUNNIEST MOVIES OF THE YEAR!"
-David Sheehan, CBS-TV
They locked up mob boss Paul Vitti in Sing Sing and that's where he sang sang - croaking tunes from West Side Story and carrying on in a way that convinces the feds Vitti is better suited for a nut house than the Big House. Better yet, they conclude, let's release Vitti into the custody of his therapist Ben Sobel.
The boys are back and so is the fun when Robert De Niro (Vitti) and Billy Crystal (Sobel) reprise their Analyze This roles. This time, Vitti is ready to find gainful employment and go straight. Or so he says. But can high-anxiety Sobel believe Vitti, especially when guys like Lou the Wrench keep showing up? In the words of more than one sage who knows his dese from his dose: fuggedaboudit!
A good sequel but it has a sort of "been there" quality to it, which is to be expected considering the originality of the first one. You can only be original once. Still, a very funny movie.
Rated R (MPAA)
