"Don’t Drink the Water" is the hilarious story of an American family from New Jersey on vacation in a country behind the Iron Curtain who find themselves in hot water when the father accidentally takes a picture of a military installation. They rush into the nearby American Embassy two steps ahead of the police, who suspect them of spying, but, as it turns out, the Embassy isn’t much of a refuge when they find that the Ambassador is absent, and his totally incompetent son is in charge. A large crowd gathers outside the Embassy demanding the arrest of the family, while a volatile flustered cook, a crack-pot priest who thinks he’s a magician and a punctilious rat assistant to the ambassador provide a mayhem-laden and laugh-filled backdrop to the family’s frantic attempt to escape.
The director is Marilyn D. Tullgren. The cast includes Mark Tullgren, Nancy Stephens, Michelle Ross, Frances Hauert, John Ogorzalek, Bruce Holloway, Ran3dy Bright, Ian Hefele, Dan Bennett, Jim Bombicino, Nora Bright, Brenda Seitz and Mike Jerald.
