Movie Info

In this offbeat comedy, Jeff Bridges plays Craig Blake, a rich kid who works with a group of hard-living Southern real-estate men led by Jabo (Joe Spinell), who are buying up a business district in Birmingham, Alabama in order to clear the space and put in a new project. Craig is supposed to work out a deal to buy the Olympic Spa, a gym popular with local weight-lifters, but after spending some time at the club, Craig finds himself fascinated with the people there, especially Joe Santo (Arnold

Underneath it all is a lurching and poorly defined film concept.

It has its slack spells, but Rafelson's sure feel for the inexpressible subtleties of emotional relationships is evident throughout.

It is the sort of movie whose vapidity is exposed as soon as the clutter is removed.

It introduces us to sharply defined, rather odd characters and then lets them mix it up. The movie is episodic, and some of the episodes are brilliant.

...if nothing else, the film is worth checking out for the sight of Arnold Schwarzenegger playing a fiddle.

A Bob Rafelson film about a young antihero struggling to make sense out of his life and find a new direction for it

Very much a product of its time, Stay Hungry is indulgent and only sporadically amusing, but kept afloat by a typically charming Jeff Bridges.

Audience Reviews for Stay Hungry

Originally wanted to see this movie just to see Sally Field naked, but I like most Jeff Bridges and Schwarzenegger movies too. I thought it was alright. It kept me interested the whole way through moreso than I would've thought, and Sally Field was just plain hot when she was my age...still is for her age. It was a lot of fun seeing these three when they were young. I love that it's based in Alabama too, cause that's where I've lived all my life!

Good performances by Jeff and Sally and Arnold is okay, his role doesn't really require much from him. Not a great film but an okay way to spend a couple of hours.

Very good friendly comedy-drama between Jeff Bridges, Sally Field and Arnold Schwarzenegger in a small gym and it looked like they were having a good time. Bridges is the best, Field is a revelation and Schwarzenegger radiates assurance and appeal in this upbeat film.
