No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
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.

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.
