Storyline

An airplane carrying several counterfeit paintings, worth millions to the counterfeiters, suffers a malfunction in the cargo hold, spilling the paintings, as well as all the luggage, near a colony of cave men that has existed unaltered in the middle of America for millenia. Two of the men from the colony find the crashed luggage and begin to assimilate themslves into modern culture using the luggage, and that's when the fun begins. When the counterfeiters come in search of their loot, they find a lot more than they bargained for! Written by Chris Plotner <crplotne@midway.uchicago.edu>

Interesting adaptation of "The Gods Must be Crazy"

This movie was obviously inspired by "The Gods Must be Crazy". The general concept is the same: A primitive but stable society is thrown into chaos when it encounters a modern artifact. In this film, though, the primitives are living in the wilds of North America and what sets things off is luggage jettisoned from an airliner.

This is not a big-budget movie. There are no big stars, car chases, explosions or shootouts. There's only one optical effect in the entire film.

On the other hand, "Luggage of the Gods!" is a good movie. The acting, for the most part, is excellent. Lots of good laughs, mostly in the form of sight gags.

Overall a good but severely underrated movie.
