"Richly comic and sparklingly exuberant!" - The Wall Street Journal
Jeff Bridges (Seabiscuit) is "at his best" (The Village Voice), Academy Award winner Sally Field (Forrest Gump) "is a revelation" (New York Post) and Arnold Schwarzenegger (The Terminator) "radiates assurance and appeal" (The Wall Street Journal) in this "inventive" (Time Magazine) and "upbeat film" (Gene Siskel)>, for which he won a coveted 1977 Golden Globe. Directed by Bob Rafelson (The Postman Always Rings Twice) from a screenplay by Charles Gaines and Rafelson, Stay Hungry is "obviously the work of a master... you'll have a real good time" (Cbs-tv)!
When entrepreneur Craig Blake (Bridges) buys a small gym, he fully expects to demolish the place to make room for a high rise. Instead, he finds himself drawn into a world he never knew existed. From a perky gymnast (Field) who wears her heart on her leotard to a philosophizing Mr. Universe hopeful (Schwarzenegger), the freewheeling spirit of the gym touches Craig in a way he never expected - and plunges into a hilarious off-the-wall plot to stop his high rise... from ever rising!
