Don't Drink the Water is a 1994 television movie written and directed by Woody Allen, based on a play he wrote in the 1960s. This is the second filmed version of the play, after a 1969 theatrical version, starring Jackie Gleason, left Allen dissatisfied. 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.

The play itself has seen numerous successful runs on both big and small stages.

This is the second time Allen wrote and performed in a movie for TV, after Men of Crisis: The Harvey Wallinger Story, in 1971, which was never broadcast but exists at the Paley Center for Media in New York City and Los Angeles.
