This is another in a long line of movies my brother and I watched growing up. There was something about it that we really liked and kept watching it for... it's a pretty good live-action version of Popeye, with some campy effects and some funny lines.

"13% Consensus: Altman's take on the iconic cartoon is messy and wildly uneven, but it's robust humor and manic charm are hard to resist."

"September 23 "Children. They cry at you when they're young, they yell at you when they're older, they borrows from you when they's middle-aged and they leave you alone to die. Without even paying you back." I'm so sorry! I know it's sad that I'm a movie buff who enjoyed this more than The French Connection despite the fact that I gave the same rating for both of these movies. I thought this was an enjoyable movie and most of the actors were perfectly casted for their roles. I'm glad this mov"

Films and the critics who hate them (743 movies items)

"The plotting of this 1980 feature -- outsider in a hostile environment -- is personal to Altman, though few of the feelings survive the clutter. = Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader It is more than faint praise to say that Popeye is far, far better than it might have been, considering the treacherous challenge it presented. But avoiding disaster is not necessarily the same as success. - Variety"

"I might get a lot of flack, for listing this film, being it's a cult film, and all. Fair enough. But I remember not liking the movie then, when I first saw it, and like the film even less, now."
