Storyline

**Spoiler Alert** Sal (Tony Danza) has been the foreman at North Shore Fish, a frozen fish factory, for years. He and Flo (Mercedes Ruehl), the "batter" person on the assembly line, not only were high school sweethearts, but are currently carrying on an affair. Porker (Peter Riegert), Sal's right-hand man, has been madly in love with Florence since third grade. For them and all the workers at North Shore Fish, laughter is their medicine to get through the monotony of work, especially when the pressure is on to increase their output. The job gets tougher when a new health inspector, Shimma (Wendie Malick) arrives and could shut them down if they don't meet government standards. Meanwhile, Flo is pregnant and isn't sure she wants an abortion. Try as they might to keep things running, a stunned Sal announces the closure of North Shore Fish. The factory was sold to an athletic club without his knowledge and they must pack their things immediately. Adapted by playwright Israel Horovitz ... Written by SouthernBelle29

Not Bad...but wait for it to be re-shown on TV
9 August 2000 | by (North Hollywood, Califorina) – See all my reviews

Being a fan of Israel Horovitz, I was excited to see North Shore Fish. It's been awhile but I remember getting bored with it and often switching the channels. I think it had the ability to be great, but it directing and Tony Danza's acting took it down to just okay. Mercedes Ruehl was of course great, but with no one there to help her out she proved she was not strong enough to save the movie. All and all, if they re-show this movie on cable...and nothing else is on, watch it...but by no means is it a must see.
