Movie Info

Jake Gibson's (Cam Gigandet) horoscope forecasts a perfect Five Star Day the morning of his birthday. Little does he realize that what's foretold to be a flawless day, unfolds to be far less than stellar when Jake's world is turned upside down as all that could go wrong...does. Determined that Astrology has no legitimacy, Jake embarks on a journey to test the theory of Astrology by finding the three people born the same time and place as himself: Sarah Reynolds (Jena Malone), Yvette Montgomery (Brooklyn Sudano) and Wesley Henderson (Max Hartman). -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Five Star Day

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (9)

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.

Top Critic

The uneven script, repetitive tropes and over-indulgence of actorly bits slow the pace, tipping youthful casualness into complacency.

Top Critic

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.

Audience Reviews for Five Star Day

A slacker college student sets out to prove that astrology is bullsh*t. Well, duh! We really need a movie to tell us something we already know. He pays, heaven knows how, for airfare from California to Chicago, New York and New Jersey looking to find 3 other people who were born within 5 minutes of him on the same day in the same hospital - because they all had the same horoscope on their birthday, which was for a banner, 5 star day. He wants to compare their days to disprove astrology. Yes, it is as boring and stupid as it sounds. Jena Malone is adorable though.
