Krippendorf's Tribe Photos

Movie Info

After squandering his grant money, despondent and recently widowed anthropologist James Krippendorf (Richard Dreyfuss) must produce hard evidence of the existence of a heretofore undiscovered New Guinea tribe. Grass skirts, makeup, and staged rituals transform his three troubled children into the Shelmikedmu, a primitive culture whose habits enthrall scholars. But when a spiteful rival threatens to blow the whistle on Krippendorf's ruse, he gets into the act as well.

    Ooga-Booga! Richard Dreyfuss is hilarious in this movie when he invents his own lost tribe. A fun comedy.

    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.
