Analyze This | 1999 | R | - 4.7.10

When infamous mob boss Robert De Niro starts losing his homicidal, vengeful tendencies, he bullies psychoanalyst Billy Crystal into "fixing" him. Also with Lisa Kudrow, Joe Viterelli, Chazz Palminteri and Kyle Sabihy. [1:43]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - Sexual innuendo (including references to impotence and oral sex) and kissing. We hear moaning and see people moving underneath sheets; we then see a scantily clad woman breathing heavily while moving rhythmically on top of a man.

VIOLENCE/GORE 7 - A man is shot in the chest (we see two bloody bullet holes on his shirt) and another is shot in the back several times (we see holes in his jacket). Gunfire is exchanged in several scenes: in one scene three men are shot (we see a little blood on their clothes) and a few cars are bullet-ridden, and in another a man is shot in the chest (some blood is visible). Men in a car open fire on a restaurant; we see lots of glass breaking and a man's body lying on the ground. During a scuffle, we hear glass breaking, see a lamp explode after it's shot, then see a man fall out of a very high window (it's implied he dies on impact). It's implied that a man is being beaten when we hear loud crashes coming from a room. A man who's tied to a chair is slapped, and several other men are slapped in different scenes. We see a man with a bag over his head and rope bound around his legs and arms lying in a car's trunk; he starts moving around and is slapped. Some threatening with guns and many verbal threats. A man shoots a sofa cushion several times. We see a man in an aquarium shark tank (nothing happens). In a series of full-screen photographs, we see a sheet-covered corpse and a man with a bandaged head and blood on his suit coat.

LANGUAGE 10 - Nearly 85 F-words, lots of anatomical and scatological references, a couple of mild obscenities and lots of insults.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
