5 Star Day

JOY REVIEW

Five Star Day is actually a really cool idea in that a student who is at Berkeley, studying an ethics course, decides that horoscopes are really bunk, and so he is going to de-bunk it, claiming that 75% of the newspapers in America carry a horoscope column, and 30% of people think that it is science. The way he does it is sort of ingenious. He was born in Chicago on some day in February at a certain time and he goes and finds all of the people who are born at the same time and the same place, the idea being that they would share the same horoscope and therefore, they would share the same fate; the idea being that the day that you are strongest is your birthday, so he finds out what everybody’s birthday was like. It is a really interesting story. The problem is that the acting is a little bit amateurish. I mean, it has the requisite leading man with good looks, but he is not a great actor. It is just a little bit amateurish, but it is still a fresh idea, it just could have been done a little bit better. I will give it two and a half stars.
