BACK IN THERAPY.
Mob boss Paul Vitti (Robert De Niro) has gone completely nuts in prison and is released into dr. Ben Sobel’s (Billy Crystal) care – it’s all a hoax of course, but the mobster does try to go straight… Few must have thought that this sequel would be just as good, or even better, than the original; it’s worth a look for fans, the words are well delivered, but it’s no better than City Slickers: The Legend of Curly’s Gold (1994), another lackluster sequel starring Crystal. This film’s screenplay lacks focus and the central relationship keeps getting less believable.

Quote: “He stabbed himself in the back four times and threw himself off a bridge.” (Viterelli describing a “suicide”)
