Review

A star rating of 4 out of 5.

Before Arnold Schwarzenegger found muscleman fame and Robert Englund became Elm Street's Freddy, they turned up as characters in Bob Rafelson's culture-clash tale about what happens when Alabama heir Jeff Bridges infiltrates a downtown gym for real-estate reasons and falls for Sally Field. 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.
