This wonderful journey, “full of adventure, bravery, excitement, and friendship…has something for audiences of all ages” (Claudia Puig, USA Today). The “lively and likable” (Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times) tale is told through the eyes of Tuck, Munch and Alex, a trio of pals who make an out-of-this-world discovery. After receiving signals on their phones, they meet Echo, a small, but amazingly energetic, alien trying to make his way back to his home planet. As they race to help their new friend, the boys will discover that little Echo has touched their hearts in unexpected ways and changed their lives forever.

One of the hardest things about moving is the fear of losing old friends, along with making new ones. Tuck, Munch and Alex are close friends who have had lots of fun and adventures together growing up. Now their neighborhood is being torn down due to a big construction project. They don’t know how their friendship will withstand the fact that they are all moving. As moving day looms closer things get a bit strange. A strange series of signals starts coming up on the boys cell phones. The boys join up with their friend Emma and set out on one last adventure, perhaps their biggest one yet – finding the source of the strange phone signals. The quartet is amazed to find a tiny alien that’s stranded here on Earth. They work together to protect him from everyone else and find his way home. This movie is a family movie that I enjoyed. I will say that it has humor in it that might be a bit “old” for very young kids so I’d say this movie will be best enjoyed by tweens and up.
Here’s the trailer.

Earthly Adventures with Echo
Here are some of the best ways to spend time with your friends- outside and away from your cell phones!
1. Pick Up Games
There is nothing like starting a sports pickup game with all your neighborhood friends. Between sitting in class all day and coming home to do homework, a quick game, whether it is hockey, baseball, basketball or soccer, will let you use up some of that energy you’ve been storing! Not only this, but this is an awesome way to make new friends.

2. Bike Rides
With your parents permission of course, take a cruise around the neighborhood with your friends! Also, make sure you wear a helmet. You can use your imagination and make fun adventures out of your journey!
3. Hide N’ Seek
A neighborhood game of Hide N’ Seek is the ultimate outside activity. With permission from your parents, and of course, using the buddy system when it comes to hiding, Hide N’ Seek is sure to be an awesome time.
4. Backyard Campout
Ask your mom and dad to set up a backyard camp out for you and your friends! Start by setting up a tent and marking your territory with your sleeping bag! You can spend the night telling scary stories and eating S’mores!
