The Shrink Next Door Plot
Perhaps because the therapy depicted in the film is ongoing, The Shrink Next Door loses focus. Marty Markowitz (Ferrell), the CEO of a fabric company, meets with Dr. Ike Herschkopf (Rudd) for a mental health checkup. Soon enough, Herschkopf has persuaded Markowitz to cut relations with his family and give him unrestricted access to his Hamptons mansion. This confidence game is seen in action, with Herschkopf convincing his patient that he’s on the verge of a breakthrough if he only gives his doctor a little more access. This corporate boss is quickly taking his psychiatrist’s dictation and delivering his master bedroom to him.
Despite the large-scale burglary, “The Shrink Next Door” feels distant. Herschkopf’s tone ranges from solicitous to frigid, yet both sides come out as walled off and unpleasant. Rudd, an exuberantly charismatic performer, nails the part of the show where Herschkopf turns off his warmth. But he never manages to conjure the kind of allure that would entice us into his schemes, or even explain why Markowitz would fall for them. Ferrell doesn’t help matters by expertly portraying a character who is cut off from his desires: Between a dishonest analyst and an analysand who is eager to hand over everything, there is no back-and-forth. It’s a well-acted portrayal of a stoic individual – hardly dramatic material.
Markowitz eventually comes to terms with his predicament with the support of his sister (Kathryn Hahn, who is disappointingly underused). But it’s unclear why a successful guy would be prepared to invest decades of his life and millions of dollars in a doctor who treated him like a toy. Not every enigma of the universe requires an artistic explanation. However, “The Shrink Next Door” appears to be more concerned with registering our surprise at an unexpected occurrence than with having us care enough about the characters involved to question why.
