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.

November 2, 2011
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.

November 1, 2011
A drippy ending erases all the hopes you've built up and forces you to conclude that this wasn't such a well-thought-out film after all.

Gigandet fills every close-up with flirtatious face wrinkles, embarrassed smiles, and anything else he can think of, to the point where Jake seems downright spastic.
