Analyze This

A simple idea made better than it appears by the charismatic performances from the two leads. De Niro mastered the art of playing mobsters years ago (although his climatic crying scene is the worst acting I've ever seen him do), and Crystal plays a surprisingly laid back part that for some reason gives the character extra credibility.

Mob boss (De Niro) is having anxiety attacks and so seeks the counsel of psychiatrist (Crystal) who's just trying to plan his upcoming nuptials to his girlfriend (Kudrow) and not upset his new client enough to get killed. The comedy could have been hackneyed and predictable but seemed to stay fresh throughout and Groundhog Day's Harold Ramis further cemented himself as a leading comedy director.
