Editorial Reviews

This outrageous comedy stars Richard Dreyfuss (MR. HOLLAND'S OPUS) and sexy Jenna Elfman (TV's DHARMA AND GREG), who discover that primitive culture is as close as your own backyard! Instead of documenting a previously unknown trible in New Guinea, Professor James Krippendorf (Dreyfuss) has blown the last two years ... and all his grant money ... rearing his out-of-control kids! Desperate to bluff his way past impatient colleagues, Krippendorf decides to focus his camera on the wildest tribe he can find: his own outragoues offspring! With a top cast including Lily Tomlin (DISNEY'S THE KID) -- you'll find the crowd-pleasing lengths taken to pull off this hoax absolutely hilarious!

Customer Reviews

This is a classic movie that holds a lot of laughs for the whole family.
Marcia Samuelson
I love reruns, especially when you can watch them anytime you choose, with no commercials, and it is wonderful to be able to find the movie you want.
Cindy
A discussion came up at work on movies and I mentioned that I found Krippendorf's Tribe to be a totally enjoyable movie - not too silly, just fun.

I saw this movie not really knowing what to expect. I was amused and kept on the edge of my seat. I was not expecting anything of the stars and, evidently, that's what you need - an open mind. Since I have seen this in the theater I have anxiously awaited the release of it in home video - which I purchased right away. If you want a nice, funny, laid back movie - this is it.

As much as I don't care for Dreyfuss or Elfman, I really enjoyed this movie, and thats a shocker to everyone who knows me because I walked into the theater with my once normal "everything [is bad]" attitude; If I can think something's funny, anyone can. Do yourself a favor, ignore the cynical reviews everyone else says, THIS IS FUNNY STUFF!!

This movie is spontaneous, energizing, fast-paced and funny. You really 'get into' what is going on and the more you let your mind be open the more you will Laugh. We recently tried a new wine and, of course, could not stop laughing about scenes in the movie. This is the type of movie that makes life fun. Superb acting!!

This is a great DVD movie for all, but especially anthropologists and other university types as it shows Dreyfuss' characther doing what he can to keep his grants and his prestigious job. It is indeed "hysterically funny" and "wildly hilarious" as the covers say and despite its lack of extras is a fine disc so rush out and buy it and...
Wait, there's one little problem...WHERE'S THE WIDESCREEN? The back specs say Widescreen, so why is it FullScreen? Granted, the 'home movie' film clips would be difficult to render Wide, but still, why say it is when it is not. Very disappointing, which is why I give it only 3 stars and suggest being careful if that is what you want, otherwise, enjoy. Also, if your looking for another movie like this, check out Joe Versus the Volcano with Tom Hanks.

I laughed a lot. It was a unique movie; I have never seen anything like it before. If you like off-beat comedies like "Captain Ron" and "Carbon Copy", you'll enjoy this. If you take things too seriously like a New York theater-goer, then this is not your film.

This is one of the funniest movies I ever saw, and I have seen alot. Great preformances by Dreyfuss and Elfman make this movie work wonderfully and make you laugh so hard you think your going to cry. This film is put together in a way it's sure to make you laugh.
Professor James Krippendorf(Richard Dreyfess) is a Professor of anthropology and also a widower. Down in depression he ends up using the universities grant money for his own personal use. Faced with either confessing and going to jail, or going on with his fairy tale tribe. He chooses to go on with his made up tribe the Shelmikedmu. Using his own 3 kids and back yard for filming. He comes up with the most unique tribe ever seen before. Also with the help of his over anxious colleague Veronica Macelli(Jenna Elfman) who wont leave him alone. He ends up going deeper and deeper into his fairytale tribe, and trying to keep up with his lie. They end up taking the tribe national. But there is one of his colleagues Ruth Allen that just isn't swallowing all this Shelmikedmu stuff. So she decides to go to New Guinea and prove that it's all a scam. Even Krippendorf goes so far he ends up going in person and on national tv as the Cheif Utta Baji.
This movie is very well put together, and just so ridiculous you got to laugh. In the end you will wish you were shelmikedmu too. It's definetly worth having in your movie collection and seeing.

This movie is great! Richard Dreyfuss and Jenna Elfman are a good team, and the three child actors who portray the children of Dreyfuss are really good, too. This is a good movie for the family to enjoy together, as there is little or no foul language or nudity. You will laugh a lot!
