SYNOPSIS

Jake Gibson's (Cam Gigandet) horoscope forecasts a perfect five star day the morning of his birthday. Little does he realize, his entire world is about to be turned upside down as everything that could go wrong does. Now, with his career and personal life on hold, Jake embarks on a journey to find the three people born the same time and place as himself: a single mom haunted by her past (Jena Malone), an overworked nurse (Brooklyn Sudano) and an undiscovered jazz singer (Max Hartman). Though his goal is to disprove the theory of astrology, Jake ends up learning deeper lessons about life, love and destiny that will change his life forever.

Though it's not exactly going to blow anyone's mind-"Five Star Day" is still a very thought provoking and smartly made movie. It starts with an interesting premise about astrology and whether or not there is some significance to the astrological circumstances a person is born under or whether it's all just one big crock. In the film, the protagonist (played by Cam Gigandet) essentially takes it upon himself to track down two women and one man born in the same hospital he was who also share his same birth date to see whether or not their collective recent birthday experiences mirror his own. What got me the most about "Five Star Day" was that it seemed to tread new ground and that alone is a commendable quality. It also has its share of likable and surprising characters, most of which I found myself growing easily sympathetic toward. A really good movie should leave you thinking about it long after it's finished. What did it mean? What do I take away from it? That's exactly what this film did for me. There are some personal lessons to be learned here if you're open to them. I recommend "Five Star Day" for some night when you're thinking about the significance of your life and where your place is in the universe. I think I saw this film classified somewhere on this page as a "comedy". Trust me, it is NOT a comedy, nor is it a super heavy drama. It's really just an interesting film about self discovery.

Warning, firstly, I do a lot of research at work, and often I find myself like this character having data that supports views that I do not like. So I identified with the main character also because I found him to be a nice guy. Maybe that is partly why I liked the movie so much. This may not be the same with you.

Overall, I thought the story was both good and original. The movie starts off that the hero's horoscope predicts he will have a great day, a 5 star day. The day turns out to be a disaster. Needing a subject for his course, he decides his subject will be to prove that astrology is nonsense. So off his adventures start as he goes and interview's people who have the same star sign as he does. It is a light story, but it does have its moments. I did like his speech that we make our own future.

The characters were good, interesting and believable.

The acting, I thought was very good. I liked everyones' performance.

The filming was good too.

Would I see it again, probably not as I have seen it, and it is not that deep that I feel I need too, but I do recommend it!

The movie did start a little slow but than started to make sense. It made you wonder about people born at the same date, time and place what there life is like.

Love Cam Gigandet and this is probably one of his best performances. He is the lead and does a great job.
