Krippendorf's Tribe is a 1998 comedy film that was adapted for the screen from the Frank Parkin's novel. The film, directed by Todd Holland, follows the story of a respected anthropologist named James Krippendorf (Richard Dreyfuss) and his wife Jennifer (Barbara Williams). After a long trip in New Guinea in search of a lost tribe, his wife dies after returning to the United States. In complete disarray, James uses the rest of his grant money from the expedition to help raise his kids. Now, with a speech about his trip scheduled, he scrambles to cover-up the misuses of his grant funds. Instead of saying he didn't find the tribe, he uses his family and an elaborate set in his backyard as the lost tribe he was supposed to of found while on his trip. However, the findings lead to continuous inquisition about details of this lost civilization. Now James must continue the charade by filming more and more extravagant circumstances. The film also stars Jenna Elfman, David Ogden Stiers, Lilly Tomlin, Gregory Smith, and Mila Kunis.moreless
