    Frank ScheckThe Hollywood Reporter

    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. show more

    Danny Buday's film is not so much skeptical of astrology as confused about it. show more
