Robert De Niro gives one of his best comedy performances to date in this feel-good Mafia tale from Groundhog Day director Harold Ramis. De Niro stars as a Manhattan Mob boss whose stressful lifestyle causes him to seek undercover therapy from psychiatrist Billy Crystal. De Niro's deadpan responses to the Freudian dissections, together with soon-to-be-married Crystal's increasing entanglement with the "family" business, bring on the laughs thick and fast. There's a clever script packed with fresh repartee, digs at GoodFellas and hilarious moments of joyous farce, and Ramis's skilled timing allows the two dynamic leads to show their full comic potential.


A stressed mobster is plagued by anxiety attacks that leave him incapable of killing. When a car crash brings him into contact with a psychiatrist, he thinks he has found the solution to his problems. Naturally, the horrified shrink is reluctant to be drawn into the world of organised crime - especially when the gangster starts to intrude on his personal life, and the FBI tries to recruit him as a mole. Comedy, with Robert De Niro, Billy Crystal, Lisa Kudrow, Chazz Palminteri and Joe Viterelli.
