Four People. One Horoscope. Infinite Possibilities. Jake Gibson's (Cam Gigandet) horoscope forecasts a perfect FIVE STAR DAY the morning of his birthday, but what's foretold as a flawless day unfolds to be far less than stellar. Jake's world turns upside down when 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). The journey quickly uproots Jake from the small college town of Berkeley, California, to downtown Chicago where he sets out to find and interview Sarah, Yvette and Wesley to see if their birthdays proved to be as deplorable as his own.

Sometimes you regret spending the time

Let's be honest here.

When I read a book, I give it about 50 pages to convince to get to the last page.

It is the same for movies. About 20 minutes. I have no problem whatsoever walking out of a movie theatre. But, it does not happen very often. But in this case it did.

The main character is played by an actor who comes across as lazy, pretentious and completely self absorbed.

The directing, filming and editing looked like they were done with no purpose.

And, most of all, the storyline and the initial sequences had no credibility.

Before this film was made, there should have been some rewriting, and in the pre-production stage, the casting of the main character should have been made more carefully.
