Analyze This

Here I go again, writing another review. I decided after 29 reviews and counting that I would analyze this movie just to be different. Besides that it makes a great pun. It also gets the name of the movie in the review without capital letters. 

This movie is a fun feel good comedy that actually has a plot as well as a moral. I would tell you more about them but then I’d be ruining the movie. This movie gives three actors the chance to play the roles they play best. Robert De Niro is of course a gangster. Billy Crystal plays the comedic roles he plays best. The babbling know it all who always has something to say. And Lisa Kudrow plays the strong spoken blonde she made famous in Friends. In other words she is just Phoebe but not quite as dumb.

        Surprisingly enough the roles work well together. They blend perfectly well to together with the familiar looking faces of the always typecast Mafia/gangster character actors. This movie is fun, funny, and simply a joy to watch. You will find your self laughing out loud and enjoying the comedic gem. You never know, you too might decide to analyze this movie.

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
