Trivia

Mulberry Woods is a fictional town in Nevada, USA which is the residence of Tuck, Alex and Munch, the film's three main characters, and the location of the spaceship Echo uses to leave Earth. Earth to Echo was actually shot in Santa Clarita California, which can be seen in a billboard advertising dental care for a few seconds during the film. See more »

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.

Solid Entertainment for young people
8 October 2014 | by the_black_dogSee all my reviews

This film is something like ET meets Wall-E, in a modern style. Solid entertainment for kids and people who don't care about realism that much. I do enjoyed the film and it definitely deserves a better rating than 5.8 (the actual IMDb-rating) Don't get bothered by the people complaining this movie is just a bad copy of ET. It is done for people who are young right now wanting to enjoy a solid movie and not the old ones living in the past. Sure ET, the old Indiana Jones movies and the other stuff was great, but that doesn't mean new movies are bad by definition.

Whatever, if you want to enjoy some light entertainment made for kids you can definitely be happy with this one - but don't expect a mindblowing classic ;)
