Plot Outline:

Recently widowed anthropologist James Krippendorf has run out of grant money. In order to get more, he must show tangible results from his "research" so far. Trouble is, he doesn't have any. In total desperation, Krippendorf recruits his children to help. Dressed in grass skirts and makeup and inventing "native" dances, they become the Shelmikedmu tribe.

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.

Not a terrible comedy. It has a couple of really funny moments and not much else. Pretty bland and mediocre, for the most part.
