Measurements of the in-plane fluctuation-enhanced conductivity of c-axis oriented Tl-Ba-Ca-Cu-O thin films have been performed over the temperature range Tc to 240 K. The results were consistent with two-dimensional fluctuation theory and with a linear dependence of the normal resistivity on temperature down to (T-Tc)Tc0.03. A crossover to three-dimensional fluctuations close to Tc was not found. The width of the superconducting transition appears to be a measure of a distance over which layers fluctuate in a correlated manner.
