Buff sailor-man Popeye arrives in an awkward seaside town called Sweethaven. 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! Written by

As per the info in the trivia section of this film, the make up and appliances for Popeye's massive forearms were not ready. So in some scenes, especially the boxing match, if you look at the inside of his forearms, you can see that they are merely flesh colored pads tied over Robin Williams' arms (the strings are visible).

The opening begins with 1.33 footage windowboxed in the 2.35 frame, with a black and white vintage Paramount logo, followed with a standard credit sequence for the original Max Fleischer-produced Popeye cartoons. When the ship doors open up (where the cartoon title would normally be revealed), instead an animated Popeye sticks his head out of the doors, looks around, and proclaims "Hey, what's this? One of Bluto's tricks? I'm in the wrong pitcher!" The movie then cuts to full color and Panavision, and the remaining credits continue. See more »
A tragically underrated film, Popeye is actually quite brilliant!
I remember when Altman released Popeye and it was slammed by most critics and ignored by the public. It deserves much better than that though!
Fantastic set design, great acting, high production values, strangely off kilter tunes, and just general all around weirdness make Popeye one of my favorites. Brilliantly twisted and twistedly brilliant.
Disagree? Oh well, whatever....."I yam what I yam and I likes what I likes!"
