Critic Reviews for Krippendorf's Tribe
Pretty lame comedy stuff with Dreyfuss leading family misadventures. Sophomoric.
The fact that people loved this movie is beyond me; the fact that it was an Oscar contender blows me away.
Dreyfuss deserves a whole lot better than this garbage.
In order to find Krippendorf's Tribe funny, you must agree with it on one fundamental principle: Penises are funny.
Look at Richard Dreyfuss on the poster, weep for him, and then rent something else.
in terms of raunchiness and innuendo, 'Tribe' turns out to be almost as ribald as an 'Inside Edition' report on Monica Lewinsky. Jokes about menstruation, circumcision, penis size and prehistorical marital aids are sprinkled liberally throughout...
Audience Reviews for Krippendorf's Tribe
Ooga-Booga! Richard Dreyfuss is hilarious in this movie when he invents his own lost tribe. A fun comedy.More
Quite how we're expected to swallow the idea that a collection of eminent anthropologists would be fooled by Richard Dreyfuss' wife and kids running around a middle american suburb in grass skirts is beyond me, but he's his usual likeable self in an inconsequential but inoffensive family comedy.More
