Storyline

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

Fun and Heart Warming
31 August 2016 | by mjbsetSee all my reviews

I think low ratings of this movie (under 5) are quite unfair. There are very funny moments in this movie and in spots it's heart warming. The actors put forth convincing performances and convincing performances (as a cast) in any movie these days ar least earns the movie a 3 minimum and only serious debacles could make that rating lower. This movie is a fun diversion that explores family issues in a non-threatening way. You become emotionally invested in the characters instead of emotionally burdened. Gina Rodriguez has a very lovable girl next door quality in this movie. It isn't a must see movie but if you are channel suffering and find this most likely it is the best movie you haven't seen yet that is on. So give it a chance. A ten point rating system is a little restrictive. This movie is just barely a 7 while other movies I have rated 7 are really a 7.5
