New York Times - 02/27/1998
"...Decent family fun....A bright, lighthearted surprise..."

Product Description:

After squandering his grant money, despondent and recently widowed anthropologist James Krippendorf 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.

Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:

Krippendorf's Tribe
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!

Funny Movie, but Beware of Incorrect A/R Movie Lover: from LOUISVILLE, KY US -- August, 21, 2016

Just a note to advise folks about the incorrect Aspect Ratio listed on the DVD cover.

Disney produced two different DVD covers for this film, one says
"Widescreen (1.85:1) - Enhanced for 16x9 Televisions"

and the other says

"Fullscreen (1.33:1)"

The problem is, there is absolutely no difference between the two DVD's - The screen size is exactly the same on both versions, 720x540 pixels (Fullscreen, 4:3, 1.33:1).

I have purchased multiple copies of both versions, just to make sure, and they are exactly the same...
