“Analyze This” is the 1999 mob comedy movie directed by Harold Ramis (Ghostbusters) that effectively acts like fun, friendly therapy for all who see the laugh fest. The big screen comedy stars Robert DeNiro as Paula Vitti, the big crime boss who needs psychiatric advice, Billy Crystal as Dr. Sobel, who acts as the mental health professional, and Lisa Kudrow as Crystal’s girlfriend and fiancée. The film spawned a sequel, “Analyze That” which was released in 2002.
He’s the actor who is at home in both tense drama and broad comedy. He starred in the “The Godfather”, sequel, “The Godfather II”, and he played Vito Corleone as a young man, so his Godfather pedigree is forever intertwined in the classic American movie trilogy. DeNiro’s acting reputation has become almost as legendary as Marlon Brando’s and he excels at drama, thrillers or comedies like “Analyze This” or “Meet The Parents”. He’s active in independent movie circles and was one of the founders of the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City, after the tragedy of September 911. DeNiro’s estimated worth is a fatherly $185 million dollars.
He can tickle your funny bone without even really trying. He first came to real prominence on television when he played the gay character of Jodie, on the groundbreaking prime time soap, called “Soap”. It was a breakthrough character for TV, but it never limited nor stereotyped the versatile Crystal. A stint on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live”, where he became known for his Fernando Lamas impersonation and tagline of “You look marvelous!” Crystal moved over to the big screen and he made movies like, “When Harry Met Sally” and “City Slickers” with Jack Palance. Billy Crystal has an estimated net worth of $45 million dollars.
She’s the wacky, ditzy or just plain old dumb friend of the fun loving bunch of “Friends”, but Phoebe’s arguably the more loved of the friendly gang. Lisa Kudrow the actress bears little resemblance to Phoebe’s dim wit. In real life, Kudrow holds a BA in Biology, and was studying the science of headaches for years before she broke into showbiz in a big way. After “Friends”, Kudrow has kept busy playing Billy Crystal’s romantic interest in the mobster comedy, “Analyze This” – starring Robert DeNiro, and the cult comedy “Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion” opposite Mira Sorvino. Kudrow’s estimated net worth is a more than clever $60 million dollars.
