Fish Don't Blink is a comedy film that was released in 2002, directed by Chuck DeBus. The story follows a group of strangers who meet on a train journey from Los Angeles to Chicago. They are all going to the wedding of two friends, but things take a strange turn when their train gets stuck in the middle of nowhere. The group includes Tom (Wil Wheaton), a nerdy computer programmer who is heading to the wedding alone; Jeanne (Lea Thompson), a struggling actress; Herb (Richard Grieco), a slick salesman; and a young couple named Chuck and Melanie. Along the way, they encounter a variety of eccentric characters, including a surly conductor, a group of Amish people, and a mysterious hitchhiker.

As the journey progresses, tensions rise among the strangers. Tom is attracted to Jeanne, but she seems uninterested. Herb is trying to sell everyone on his latest product, a miracle weight-loss pill, but no one is buying it. Meanwhile, Chuck and Melanie are struggling with relationship issues.

The film is full of quirky humor and absurd situations. For example, at one point, the train gets stuck in a tunnel, and the passengers must all crawl out of the windows to escape. At another point, they come across a deserted town that seems to be frozen in time.

One of the standout performances in the film is by Lea Thompson. She plays Jeanne with a perfect mix of vulnerability and sassiness. Wil Wheaton is also great as the awkward and endearing Tom. Richard Grieco brings his trademark coolness to the role of Herb.

The cinematography is another highlight of Fish Don't Blink. The film takes place mostly on a train, but the camera never feels too static. There are plenty of beautiful shots of the passing scenery, as well as some creative camera angles that add to the film's whimsical tone.

Overall, Fish Don't Blink is a fun and quirky comedy that is sure to make audiences smile. It's not groundbreaking cinema, but it doesn't try to be. Instead, it's a lighthearted romp that will leave viewers feeling happy and entertained.

Fish Don't Blink is a 2002 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 40 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.9.
