Storyline

A desperate young couple, on the run from the mob, drop anchor at a remote rundown restaurant in the middle of the desert named the Nautilus. At first, it seems like a great place to hideout but soon they find themselves smack dab in the center of a family that gives a whole new definition to the word crazy and makes them think that maybe they'd be better off with the mob.

This is one of those films that adds up to a whole lot more than the sum of its parts.

This movie was based on a stage play of the same name "Fish Don't Blink". It has a live theater feel and experience that is only made greater on film. That is not always true of adaptations.

It would be a challenge to pick a better film cast. This is some of the best work you will see from each of the cast members. Casting Will Wheaton as Jimmy was a brilliant choice. His delivery is always spot on.

If you like Lea Thompson before you see her as Clara, you are going to be building monuments to her after watching her perform. I'm ashamed to say that I did not recognize Richard Grieco, who plays Pete in the movie. I know him now, and already have his films on my must see list.

I could spend a lot of time mentioning every single cast member, and each one deserves individual praise. I'm not going to take that amount of time. You will just have to see this movie to see how good they all are.

If I was just a little more spontaneous I just might jump in the car and visit the place where this was filmed. I understand why films like this get a 'cult' following.

For me, it was a hit from first line to last. A sleeper, but a rare gem too.

You need a certain dry wit or droll way of looking at life, but if you have that, you will watch this movie more than once or twice. It is that good.

I researched every cast member, the location of the shoot, everything. I wanted more.

I have not had this much fun since the first time I saw Rocky Horror Picture Show.

It really is that good. Trust me. I have never lied to you before. :-)
