Trivia

Goofs

When the group of kids is heading back to the construction site, the movie shortly plays a view of the Superstition Mountains. The Superstition Mountains are in the Phoenix area of Arizona, and definitely NOT in Nevada. This is a clear geological oversight. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Tuck: All right, mom, I'm leaving. Spending the night at Alex's house so we can play a new video game.
Theresa Simms: [busy talking] Have whatever you want, honey.
Tuck: You know what, I lied, actually. We're gonna ride our bikes out into the desert, at night, alone. Without supervision.
Theresa Simms: [still busy talking] Okay, see you then, sweetie.
Tuck: Also rob a bank. Go to Mexico. Maybe even start a new life.

It's great!
19 October 2014 | by (Athens, Greece) – See all my reviews

I really do not understand why people didn't like this.

I liked it very much. This has got to be the cutest alien I've ever seen.

It is actually my first review because I was so frustrated to see such low scores on this one and such hating reviews.

OK, I can understand that some people do not like the filming style but c'mon!

And the movie had me moved as a movie should do.

So I would definitely recommend it.

Though I must say I expected it to be "deeper" is terms of meaning and general philosophy but then again, expectations mean nothing.

So.., enjoy watching!
