Finally, an outstanding comedy that’s also a good movie, Analyze This. Billy Crystal is very convincing as psychotherapist Ben Sobel, who is becoming increasingly bored with his uninteresting clients. Until the day he slams his car into the rear end of a Lincoln owned by mob boss Paul Vitti, played by Robert De Niro. One of the thugs steps out of the Lincoln and walks back to occupy Ben, while the other thug tapes the trunk shut to conceal its contents from view – a bound and gagged man. Feeling responsible for the damage, Ben offers his card for insurance purposes. The next day Mr. Vitti shows up at Bens office saying a friend of his needs counseling, and asks if Ben can see his friend privately. Knowing that Mr. Vitti is the one who wants help, Ben tells him that his schedule is too full for one more client. Mr.Vitti volunteers to persuade a few of Ben’s patients to cancel their sessions, and suddenly Ben said he could make time. Ben goes on t o say that he is going to Ft. Lauderdale to be married, but he would be back in two weeks and could begin seeing Mr. Vitti then. Mr. Vitti doesn’t accept no for an answer, and follows Ben, who is repeatedly abducted from the street, the restaurant and even his hotel room by Mr. Vitti’s thugs, so that he can have a session. This is a hilarious movie with plenty of funny one-liners. The writing is smart and the acting is superior. I have but one complaint: if I had eaten a piece of popcorn every time they used the F-word, I would have been taken out of the theater with a forklift. I easily give it an A rating.

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
