      Audience Member Movie is full of drama, but never left the plot. One time watch for sure. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Boring and too contrived. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review don s A slacker college student sets out to prove that astrology is bullsh*t. Well, duh! We really need a movie to tell us something we already know. He pays, heaven knows how, for airfare from California to Chicago, New York and New Jersey looking to find 3 other people who were born within 5 minutes of him on the same day in the same hospital - because they all had the same horoscope on their birthday, which was for a banner, 5 star day. He wants to compare their days to disprove astrology. Yes, it is as boring and stupid as it sounds. Jena Malone is adorable though. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Cheese movie, I watched in one of those blue weekends and it was just what I needed to cheer me up. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member What a strange movie that should be avoided only wish I had! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member 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. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      AV Club Rated: B- Nov 5, 2011 Full Review Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News Buday's script is directionless and his direction listless. Rated: 1/5 Nov 3, 2011 Full Review Alison Willmore AV Club 5 Star Day has a low-key air that often works, allowing its characters to behave like people instead of twee constructions. Rated: B- Nov 3, 2011 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com A film about the choices we make and how they add up to determine our destiny. Rated: 3.5/4.0 Sep 7, 2020 Full Review James Plath Movie Metropolis As indie films go, "5 Star Day" has good production values, strong performances, and compelling cinematography. It's the premise, plot, and character development that keep it from being successful. Rated: 5/10 Feb 14, 2012 Full Review Mike McGranaghan Aisle Seat I'm sure writer/director Danny Buday was trying to make something profound, yet he displays a chronic inability to generate momentum. Rated: 2/4 Feb 5, 2012 Full Review Read all reviews
