Popeye begins his movie career by singing his theme song, demonstrating his strength at a carnival, dancing the hula with Betty Boop, pummeling Bluto, eating his spinach and saving Olive Oyl from certain doom on the railroad tracks.
After 58 years of Popeye and Bluto fighting over Olive Oyl, they've all decided to finally settle down and start families. Popeye and Olive got married and had a son who hates spinach. ... See full summary »
This version of Popeye Nailed it right on the head!!
I loved this Popeye adventure. From the voice renditions, to the off-hand muttering by Popeye, right down to Pappy's scrappy lovable nature, Bluto's rough and tumble ignorance, Olive Oyl's firm-handed yet loyal nature, Sweet Pea's way of communicating without actual words and Wimpy's gad-about hand-out always hungry silliness, this movie had all the flavor of the great black and white classics!! Mainstream entertainment should be proud of this accomplishment. With beautiful textures, picture perfect models and beautiful atmospherics, they managed to capture everything I loved about Popeye as a boy. My hat is off to Paul Reiser and everyone else involved.
