Robert De Niro and Billy Crystal pair up again in the sequel to the hilarious Analyze This, in Analyze That. Though this movie isn't as funny as the first one, the bloopers are hysterical. The story is about Paul Vitti (De Niro) who has had recent assasination attemps on his life, so he fakes psychosis and has his past psychiatrist, Ben Sobel (Crystal), get him out. Once he does, he tries to go straight and get a regular job. He finally ends up working on a TV show very much like the Sopranos. But he has another trick up his sleave. Once he finds out who has been trying to kill him, he sets them up by stealing a whole bunch of gold and framing them with it.
