“You are going to have 5 star day”. Many people follow horoscopes daily and believe it paves the path for their day. I have never really followed nor even read them for myself. This film follows one person born on a specific day at a specific time at a specific place and his goal to complete his thesis comparison on horoscopes. This film This film is packed with comedy, drama and some really great performances.

Cam Gigandet plays Jake Gibson a down on his luck guy, who loses his job, his girlfriend and his car in one day, despite his vibrant horoscope. Cam sets out to complete his thesis project and disprove horoscopes. He tracks down three people who were born on the same day and at the same place as himself and find out how they spent their recent birthday. He wanted to see if the others followed their horoscopes or were similiar to Jake’s day. On his journey Jake meets Sarah Reynolds (Jena Malone), Yvette Montgomery (Brooklyn Sudano) and Wesley Henderson (Max Hartman). He ends up exploring how they spent their birthday but got a lot more than he expected on his trip.

Cam Gigandet known best for his role in the first “Twilight” film, really gets to shine in this film. He is funny, charismatic and really strong character. Jena Malone has less of a role but is really packed with drama as single mother on the brink of losing her daughter. I really enjoyed the performance from Max Hartman. I thought he was very funny and his scenes were the highlight of the film. This film is definitely worth checking out.
