If you’re looking for a way to beat the heat or escape neighborhood noise, make plans to hit the theaters with the whole family this holiday weekend. Earth to Echo is an exciting must-see movie for families this summer.

My daughter and I were able to catch a screening of Earth to Echo this past week. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed the film. With likeable and relatable characters, several laugh out loud moments, and the opportunity to root for the underdogs – you’ll find yourself wrapped up in the journey right along with Munch, Tuck, and Alex.

As I was enjoying the movie, one thought occurred to me – Earth to Echo is this generation’s Goonies. Earth to Echo is a coming of age story about friendship, adventure, and finding the courage to do something great. You’re going to love it!


Friendship is the greatest adventure of all. In theaters July 2, 2014.

Tuck, Munch and Alex are a closely bonded trio of inseparable friends, but their time together is coming to an end. Their neighborhood is being destroyed by a highway construction project that is forcing their families to move away. But just two days before they must part ways, the boys find a cryptic signal has infected their phones. Convinced something bigger is going on and looking for one final adventure together, they set off to trace the messages to their source and discover something beyond their wildest imaginations: hiding in the darkness is a mysterious being, stranded on Earth, and wanted by the government. This launches the boys on an epic journey full of danger and wonder, one that will test the limits of their friendship and change all of their lives forever.
