25. 'Stay Hungry' (1976)

Bob Rafelson's amiable comedy casts Bridges as the scion of a wealthy Alabama family who falls in with the cute receptionist (Sally Field) and the friendly bodybuilder (Arnold Schwarzenegger) at the gym he's attempting to buy. The movie goes a little nuts from there, but its freewheeling atmosphere is hard to resist, and Bridges embodies its shifting tonalities: His character drifts through the movie, and comes off as something of a child – a one-percenter who's never really had to earn a living and never got a chance to grow up.
