Interesting idea but not fulfilling its potential, 29 July 2012
Author: Gordon-11 from Earth

This film is about a young man who had a very bad birthday despite his horoscope saying otherwise. He sets out to see if other people born on the same day and at the same place share similar stories.

"Five Star Day" spends a lot of time portraying what happens to several people born on the same day. The events are heart wrenching, and I feel sorry for these people. However, the film is somehow not right, as the characters are not as engaging or enigmatic as hoped. There is not enough love to be a romantic film, and a little distracted as a drama. The debate as to whether star signs are believable or not is rather open ended, leaving the basic premise of "Five Star Day" unanswered. "Five Star Day" is an interesting idea, but it sadly does not fulfill its potential.
