This sci-fi movie is about 3 friends (boys) who are also neighbors. But then the city wants to put an overpass above their homes, and so they have to move.

I do not remember most parts of this. They go on an adventure on their bikes to make the most out of the limited time they have left; they get this weird virus of their phone, which leads them to an alien. And then in the end they move...

P.S. Not E.T. or Earth to Echo

  • Was the phone that had the “virus” a land line or was it a mobile phone? – Todd Wilcox Jul 7 '18 at 17:09

  • You could start by telling us about the ages of the three boys, what the alien looked like, when you saw the film, what age-group it was aimed at, what 'adventures' they have on the way, etc etc – Valorum Jul 7 '18 at 17:28

    For the record, the film you're describing is Earth to Echo. "After a construction project begins in their neighborhood, best friends Tuck (Brian "Astro" Bradley), Alex (Teo Halm) and Munch (Reese C. Hartwig) begin receiving strange, encoded messages on their cell phones. They immediately inform their parents and the authorities, but when no one takes them seriously, the youths decide to crack the code themselves and trace the messages to their source. The youths' curiosity leads them to a robotic extraterrestrial who desperately needs their help." – Valorum Jul 7 '18 at 17:31
