Don't Drink the Water is a 1994 television film comedy written and directed by Woody Allen, based on a play that premiered on Broadway in 1966. This is the second filmed version of the play, after a 1969 theatrical version starring Jackie Gleason left Allen dissatisfied.[1]

The story revolves around a family of American tourists (played by Allen, Julie Kavner, and Mayim Bialik) that gets trapped behind the Iron Curtain. Michael J. Fox plays the American ambassador's bumbling son.[2]

This is the second time Allen wrote and performed in a movie made for television, after Men of Crisis: The Harvey Wallinger Story, was filmed in 1971 but was never broadcast. It was supposed to have aired on PBS. A copy of the program is housed at the Paley Center for Media in New York City and Los Angeles.
