Door sticky

My passenger door is lazy. You have to "body-check" it a little to get it to open when you pull the handle. As a result, people pull the hell out of the handle on that side and are going to break it

At a guess, this seems to be a door striker problem or something; I suck at body work - is there an easy way to diagnose what is going on that would cause this symptom?

If the door doesn't line up with the striker, what you describe can happen. If the door is aligned properly, the striker can usually be moved a bit to allow the door to close as it should.
