San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
More than a high concept stretched to feature length. This is a funny and extremely satisfying comedy, the best in a while.

Crystal turns in his best (read: least sappy) performance in ages, getting through an entire movie -- most of it, anyway -- without mugging.

Watching De Niro take Paul through his first panic attack ("I'm crying like a woman") is an unalloyed joy.

Maybe the problem with Analyze This is that it isn't enough of a Ramis movie. [5 Mar 1999]

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
The comedy here isn't all on the surface, and Viterelli [the bodyguard Jelly] is one reason why.

Because De Niro's performance is aptly ''Scorsese-aggressive'' while Crystal effectively underplays, one can easily sit through this bottom-line disappointment with a smile painted on, waiting for belly laughs that rarely come. [5 Mar 1999]

Christian Science Monitor

By David Sterritt
Ramis doesn't reach the comic heights of his "Groundhog Day," but the acting is excellent and the screenplay offers some hearty laughs if you can stand bursts of violence and language as foul as a Mafioso's business agenda.
