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 »

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.

family enjoyed immensely!
25 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

After reading some reviews on this movie, we did not have high expectations. However, we thought we'd give it a shot anyway, as we tend to often not like movies that "the masses" praise anyway. We loved this film. The home-made video style made it feel real, the characters were funny, natural and believable. The actors were also unknown to us - often a plus. There was a nice little dose of suspense and action, and the moral message was appealing to our sense of values regarding other living beings. The bittersweet ending also sat well with us. Thoroughly enjoyed by a preteen, teenager and mom. Highly recommend giving this film a chance. It's not all Hollywood, cars don't blow up, there's no profanity or violence, but it's adorable, and cool enough for a teenage dude.
