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.

popeye is possibly my second favorite robert altman
movie (behind m*a*s*h) it has my favorite production
design in all of film history,shelley duvall was indeed
born to play olive oyl and robin williams was so unregionable as popeye that when i was kid i didn't know
it was williams (making his screen debut) this and later
'the world according to garp' proved that... read more

Popeye

7 years, 4 months ago at Dec 28 2:26
Perhaps if I had grown up watching this movie as a child, I would have become part of the large cult demanding that this movie be placed within the pantheon of great films from Robert Altman. It doesn’t belong there, hell, it doesn’t even really belong in his second-tier of films. Yet there’s still something enchanting about its ambitious nature despite its repeated failures to even out in t... read more

Description: The classic comic strip and cartoon hero comes to life in Robert Altman's film adaptation of the adventures of the spinach-munching sailor. After he's thrown from his ship during a storm, Popeye (Robin Williams) finds refuge in a quaint seaside town. There he rents a room from the Oyls and meets their daughter Olive (the perfectly cast Shelley Duvall). Olive is engaged to Captain Bluto (Paul Smith), a bully and ruffian who is in charge of collecting taxes for the mysterious Commandant. Popeye, who was orphaned at an early age, is in the midst of a desperate search for his missing father, but what he doesn't realize is that the s ... (more)

"FORMAT: 35mm PRINT QUALITY: ★★★★½ NOTES: Provided by the UCLA Film & Television Archive through the Robert Altman Collection; this meant that the full 114-minute cut was screened and a UK audience got to learn some more about Pappy and actually hear Popeye curse - this cut was passed with an A (proto-PG) certificate but scrapped in favour of the 97-minute cut that became Disney’s default version and ended up certified U. Feels just about equal to seeing it back in the day; dirt and ve"

"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 in the fishing village of Sweethaven 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. This is one of the first live-action movie adaptations of a cartoon and it isn't that good. As soon as the town of Sweetwater broke out into song about a minute into the"

"A baby ends nearly being killed by a octopus, but hey he'll be all right in the end! Plus, I am alone in thinking that Sweethaven is a ironic name for the town in the film? Why not Crudtown? Or Depressberg?"
