Storyline

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.

User Reviews

Interesting idea but not fulfilling its potential
29 July 2012 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

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.
