Buday's script is directionless and his direction listless.
5 Star Day has a low-key air that often works, allowing its characters to behave like people instead of twee constructions.
The uneven script, repetitive tropes and over-indulgence of actorly bits slow the pace, tipping youthful casualness into complacency.
The script lacks the depth to transcend its cutesy gimmick and -- as with the misleading horoscopes that fuel the plot -- the film never approaches a five star level.
Mr. Gigandet shows surprising sensitivity and sweetness previously untapped. He's not what I expected, and neither is Five Star Day.
There's nothing more dispiriting about a movie than a trust in star magnetism that isn't returned in actual projected wattage.
As indie films go, "5 Star Day" has good production values, strong performances, and compelling cinematography. It's the premise, plot, and character development that keep it from being successful.
I'm sure writer/director Danny Buday was trying to make something profound, yet he displays a chronic inability to generate momentum.
A romantic reminder of less-enlightened times when asking a woman her astrological sign was actually a viable pickup line.
You don't need a horoscope to know it's a bad sign when the quirky, jumbled, plodding plot is incredibly implausible.
The joy of taking charge
(The film) has its charms but is more often than not overly talky and serious...A lighter touch on (writer-director Danny) Buday's part would have likely made the film more entertaining as well as more endearing.
Well this was a surprise! Very nice movie. Probably more a "chick flick" than anything. Loved the soundtrack alot! One of those that I had never heard of, and received via Netflix by accident...but was very happy that I did.
