"The Sopranos" Meets "What About Bob?"
As i was watching this movie that's the first thing that came to me. Here we have mob boss Paul Vitti (Robert Deniro) who has to see psychiatrist Dr. Sobel (Billy Crystal) to be treated for panic attacks, and he then becomes so dependent that he follows Sobel everywhere, even interrupting (twice) Sobel's marriage to Laura (Lisa Kudrow). So what we have is essentially a "Sopranos" - "What About Bob?" hybrid, with a dose of "The Godfather" thrown in for good measure. (I'm not saying that this movie copied "The Sopranos." I realize they were in production at the same time. Just that the story is essentially the same.)

Not that this is a bad movie. Crystal and Deniro are good (although Crystal as Dr. Sobel doesn't strike me as a particularly good psychiatrist.) In general, the movie is mildly amusing and reaches the heights of hilarious when Sobel is "drafted" to represent Vitti at a meeting of mob bosses.

Overall this isn't spectacular, but I would say it's above average.
