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.

May 9, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/5

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.

Totally laid-back, this all seems pointlessly unstructured, until you realise that's the way it's supposed to be: an endearing look at barbell bums who may never win through, but have fun trying.

Audience Reviews for Stay Hungry

...whereby Jeff Bridges plays a businessman who discovers the meaning of life from a philosophising Arnold Schwarzenegger.

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.
