As SLEEPING WITH THE FISHES opens, it's safe to say Alexis Rodriguez Fish (Gina Rodriguez) has seen better days. The recent death of her cheating husband has left her both broke and broken-hearted. Trying to climb out of debt, Alexis has been reduced to juggling humiliating odd end jobs including a walking meatball hero and phone sex operator. Unhappy with the direction she is headed, Alexis struggles to find her way as the life she once knew, unfortunately no longer exists. When she receives an unexpected call from her quirky, comic-book obsessed older sister, Kayla (Ana Ortiz), to come home for a distant aunt's funeral-Alexis realizes her life might just get worse before it gets any better. Dreading the notion of going home, Alexis fears admitting to her family, especially her well-intentioned but overbearing mother, that her life is "un desastre." (a disaster) Once home, Alexis is immediately confronted by her mother (Priscilla Lopez) about her life and the choices she's made since... Written by Anonymous

This is just dire...
22 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I caught this inexplicable mess on cable. This is a very silly motion picture: the dialogue is atrocious, the millennial sarcastic snark is unbearable, and the US Latino code switching would make any Spanish-speaking foreign national kick a hole in their flat screen. We are the only country in the world that puts out this kind of goofy trash.

The two female leads who play the sisters are moderately attractive but amateurish actresses. The rest of the cast are straight out of the Summer stock central casting. The sisters are supposed to be half-Jewish on their father's side, although the complete lack of humor in the film makes this unrealistic.

There's some banal themes about body image, "fat-shaming", and the main character is a widow who seems more like a whiny girlfriend whose boyfriend left her for someone better looking.

Woody Allen creating the model for this type of film 40 years ago and very rarely is anyone able to imitate it, much less come up with something new, funny or say anything interesting about the human condition.

Congratulations, I guess...
