This is one of the most entertaining movies I've seen this year. Great dialogue, likable characters, and an enjoyable story. There is very little violence and some mild action. One child is seen driving a vehicle and has trouble driving it, but really isn't in too much harm. There is a scene where in a music store, Echo (the robot/alien) goes crazy around the store and even makes some noises with the instruments. Some store property is damaged, but no one is seriously hurt or injured. Other than that, very mild violence and some action. Now, language: The three boys talk about hot girls in one scene, but it does not go beyond the penalties of sexual content (then again, why would it?). There is one use of the word "crap" and a few other mild insults. This is a very thoughtful film; the characters are very generous and are super positive about returning Echo to his home. When the trio of boys meets Emma, the new girl, they learn to never judge a person by their looks. If you are looking for a way to spend the summer relaxing with your kids, go see Earth To Echo. I loved this movie.
