There he meets Wimpy, a hamburger-loving man; Olive Oyl, the soon-to-be love of his life; and Bluto, a huge, mean pirate who’s out to make Sweethaven pay for no good reason. Popeye also discovers his long-lost Pappy in the middle of it all, so with a band of his new friends, Popeye heads off to stop Bluto, and he’s got the power of spinach, which Popeye detests, to butt Bluto right in the mush. Watch as Popeye mops the floor with punks in a burger joint, stops a greedy tax man, takes down a champion boxer, and even finds abandoned baby Swee’pea. He’s strong to the finish ’cause he eats his spinach!
Plot: Popeye is a super-strong, spinach-scarfing sailor man who’s searching for his father. During a storm that wrecks his ship, Popeye washes ashore and winds up rooming at the Oyl household, where he meets Olive. Before he can win her heart, he must first contend with Olive’s fiancé, Bluto.

An under-rated classic.
Yep. This is a hot mess. 3 songs dont work… at all.
Its slow, as 1980 films were.
And the plot is paper thin.
But it is glorious.
This movie feels like a cartoon!
The casting is perfect. Williams did his own stunts in his debut, Duval is a whine-y beauty and hell; you couldnt find a cuter baby for the role of Sweat Pea.
The set design is incredible – it took 7 months to build.
The jokes are memorable – both spoken and visual (and there is so much happening that you only see them on repeat viewings).
And the songs (except for those 3 travesties) are catchy.
Finally, this has the best use of an Octopus aside from Lord of the Rings.
This was the perfect way to forget about Hamilton from this weekend trilogy.
Watch this – it is cheesy messy fun.
Safe to say, I didn’t enjoy ‘Popeye’ one bit – despite the presence of one Robin Williams. He is pretty alright in the role of Popeye, but I personally didn’t like the uneven/whacky nature of the film. I see – and appreciate – what they were going for, it just doesn’t come off in my opinion. It’s all very pedestrian.
The characters around Popeye are annoying, as are the very forgettable musical numbers which don’t fit in. I had high hopes for this, given I had heard good things of the titular character (not necessarily from this, just overall) as well as the fact of Mr. Williams appears. For me, in terms of his films that I’ve currently seen, this is closer to ‘Hook’ than (the awesome) ‘Bicentennial Man’.
I’m sure many out there would disagree on that latter point, as well as my view of this film itself. That’s fine, each to their own of course. I, though, couldn’t wait for it to finish.
The most unfairly maligned film ever
Why in the world hasn’t this film been released on LaserDisc in letterbox format? There’s as much or more taking place in the background nooks and crannies of Altman’s “Popeye” than there is up front. And all of it is a clever, inventive, respectful homage, to a comic strip/cartoon character that has never received his much deserved place of honor alongside Mickey, Bugs and Daffy. I want to see ALL of Robert Altman’s “Popeye,” and pan-and-scan just doesn’t cut it. Oh, the music is wonderful, by the way. It’s what grabbed my attention one day when I still mistakenly believed the critics who panned this film. I was channel surfing and I heard Olive Oyl singing “He Needs Me” and I was hooked. This film is a jewel. (“What squinky eye?”)
Only barely qualifies as a musical, or a movie for that matter
I’m not sure if you ever could have made a good picture out of the Popeye cartoon or comic. The characters and general schtick of the thing work well for half an hour at most. Still, what these filmmakers gave us in the end is worse than could ever be imagined: this is a nightmarish piece of cinema, one of the worst major Hollywood productions I have ever seen.
It’s almost miraculous how wrong everything went, because the casting is perfect. The sets and costumes are perfect. Such a shame the screenplay is terrible, meandering from plot point to plot point, vaguely connected and with the most ear bleeding-ly horrible “musical numbers” in between. Every piece of dialogue is mere noise, a cacophony of mumbling and screeching and pratfalls. I almost wished I were dead watching it.
How anyone could ever procure joy from this will be the eternal mystery for me. To call it unpleasant would be an understatement.
