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.

/ET without the fun meets Blair Witch
11 July 2014 | by kixsSee all my reviews

I took my Grandson to see this movie thinking it would be a nice non- animated movie. It was awful. The people in front of us walked out within 20 minutes and I wish we had. It is all about the boys and very little about the alien. And they should warn you that the filming is shaky and poor. It looks like a home movie. The trailers lead you to believe this is about finding an alien. It is about adolescent boys. If you enjoy listening to adolescent conversation you might like it. The story is also lacking in background and therefore difficult for younger children to follow what or why things are happening. I found it very boring and slow moving. I would NOT recommend this movie
