Analyze That

( 2 )

Overview

Proving that even mediocre films will be given a decent DVD release, Analyze That is far from a spectacular disc, but still has enough going for it to give it a try. Warner, as usual, produces a fine enough transfer, framed at 1.85:1 and anamorphic. A full-frame version is available separately. Colors are generally bright and realistic, though detail isn't particularly strong. While certainly nothing to complain about, the image doesn't stand out. Unfortunately, neither does the sound.

Overview

Proving that even mediocre films will be given a decent DVD release, Analyze That is far from a spectacular disc, but still has enough going for it to give it a try. Warner, as usual, produces a fine enough transfer, framed at 1.85:1 and anamorphic. A full-frame version is available separately. Colors are generally bright and realistic, though detail isn't particularly strong. While certainly nothing to complain about, the image doesn't stand out. Unfortunately, neither does the sound. The 5.1 English Dolby Digital track lacks any creative effort, as everything is centered up front, with no significant separation up front or in the rear speakers. Though some supplemental features are offered, they don't strengthen this disc. A commentary track from director Harold Ramis is relatively weak, with sporadic comments, though at times they are interesting. The documentary, actually a ten-minute studio fluff piece, actually gives away some key plot points, so be sure not to watch it first. Finally, along with the theatrical trailer and some filmographies, is an amusing test, called "M.A.D.E. -- the Mafioso Associate Degree Exam," to see if you belong in "the family." Neither a laugh fest, nor an exceptional disc, which is unfortunate considering the talent involved.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
The inspired pairing of garrulous, irrepressible comedian Billy Crystal and legendarily intense dramatic actor Robert De Niro has once again resulted in a hilarious romp guaranteed to keep you in stitches. It's another tour de force for director Harold Ramis, whose sturdy handling of Analyze This made it one of 1999's top-grossing movies, in the process delighting millions of viewers who reveled in De Niro's self-referential spoof of the streetwise toughs he played in such classics as GoodFellas. As Analyze That opens, psychiatrist Ben Sobel Crystal is summoned to the prison where notorious mobster Paul Vitti De Niro has suddenly developed symptoms of dementia. Sobel has his erstwhile patient paroled into his care and brings Paul home with him to live -- only to discover that the wily mobster has faked mental illness to secure his release. In a casting coup that can only be described as delicious, Cathy Moriarty -- who played the sexy young wife of De Niro's Jake La Motta in the classic Raging Bull -- appears as a seductive but heartless gang boss who plots to eliminate Vitti and take over his turf. While Ramis keeps a tight rein on the script, Crystal's facile delivery of snappy one-liners and De Niro's uncharacteristically expansive performance enhance the humor and suggest that all involved are having a blast. Lisa Kudrow returns alas, again underutilized as Crystal's long-suffering wife, and Joe Vitarelli -- the closest thing to an Italian bulldog you'll ever see -- scores repeatedly with his deadpan line readings. Analyze That is just a little bit coarser and a tad rougher around the edges than its predecessor, but it's every bit as funny. Ramis supplies a feature-length commentary for the DVD, which also includes deleted scenes, bloopers, and a theatrical trailer.

    Train Wreck Ahead

    This was one of the worst movies I have seen in years. My wife sneaked this one home from blockbuster and I had to suffer through it. I'd rather watch Gigli (for the first time), than suffer through this again. B&N Needs to add a negative star option.
