I watched this movie in the early to mid 90s about a small group of teenage like alien boys that landed, possibly due to a tech issue or even crash landing, on earth. They were found by some younger kiddos. One was a little girl.
The alien boys had a very surfer, hippie tone of voice and personality. Super radical type of teen behavior. I can't remember much from the movie itself but the young kids helped the alien boys fix their ship and got them off the planet before they were taken in by the government I believe.
Before they took off, I remember the little girl crying and one of the alien boys telling her not to cry yadayada.
Think, ninja turtle attitudes and real Micheal Jackson thriller style type of spacesuit.
These are shots in the dark memories. First thought everyone thinks of is "explorers" but that is not it. Not the same aliens or story line. The kids in this movie do not build the ship at all. They don't go to outer space.
These teen alien boys come here and need the kids' help getting home. There is a little girl helping them too. Someone has to know what I'm talking about.
