    I give this movie 7.5 out of 10. Jake's journey is quite inspirational. In his presentation, the questions, as well as the conclusion, are worth to ponder on. They allow us to step back to think of the values of life. The portrayal of the characters are distinct and impressive. The only thing that is not very good is Jake (cast by Cam Gigandet) made much unnecessary non-verbal language,I give this movie 7.5 out of 10. Jake's journey is quite inspirational.

    I did not expect to enjoy this movie, and was quite pleasantly surprised. Cam Gigandet breathes some sweetly understated, authentic life into reflective and humbled main character Jake, who sets out to disprove the validity of astrology and makes some nicely unexpected connections of his own along the way. Jena Malone is a standout in everything she does, and these two play off each otherI did not expect to enjoy this movie, and was quite pleasantly surprised. Cam Gigandet breathes some sweetly understated, authentic life into reflective and humbled main character Jake, who sets out to disprove the validity of astrology and makes some nicely unexpected connections of his own along the way. Jena Malone is a standout in everything she does, and these two play off each other in uniquely redeeming ways. Patricia Belcher makes the most of some very limited screen time by injecting her signature brand of sarcastic sass. Decent production values and a surprisingly good soundtrack combine to deliver an overlooked gem of a movie that will prompt some viewers to ponder, and a good many others to hope. Excellent work all around. Mr. Gigandet should (under)play the good guy much more often -- it seems to suit him well. Expand

    Unless your own horoscope recommended wasting two perfectly useful hours of your day, take a pass.

    5 Star Day is a middling indie, but it offers evidence of how far a synthetic setup can get just by allowing characters to react and reflect.

    Gigandet, whose star has been rising thanks to his roles in such films as "Twilight," "Burlesque" and "Easy A," delivers a sensitive portrayal that proves he's more than just a hunk. Malone is as appealing as always, and Hartman is wonderfully fun as the Buster Poindexter-like singer. But the script lacks the depth to transcend its cutesy gimmick.
