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 »
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 »
All right, mom, I'm leaving. Spending the night at Alex's house so we can play a new video game.
Have whatever you want, honey.
You know what, I lied, actually. We're gonna ride our bikes out into the desert, at night, alone. Without supervision.

Okay, see you then, sweetie.
Also rob a bank. Go to Mexico. Maybe even start a new life.

After the credits, we see Alex pointing out his phone is acting all weird again. See more »
Because of the posters, every little child who can talk wants to see this movie. However, most of the dialogue and jokes go right over the head of anyone under the age of 8-10. It is a beautiful movie that reminds me of Batteries not Included and Goonies (with that first person camera work directors love now-days), but (as with both of those movies) the target audience seems to be older families, not little children.
That being said, there is nothing overt that you want to hide your little ones from, they will just probably fall asleep as my 4 year old did. If you have a 12 year old and you want to see a movie with them, then this is the perfect movie for you.
