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.

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.
