Bride and Gloom (1954)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

It's the night before Popeye and Olive Oyl's wedding and the two are on cloud nine. Popeye begins to fantasize about what life has in store for them and he's not too thrilled with his visions.

BRIDE AND GLOOM is pretty middle tier in regards to its entertainment value. While there are a few funny moments scattered throughout the running time there's no doubt that this isn't one of the best of the Popeye series. The highlight is a scene where Popeye plants a wet kiss on a cop who then blushes from the ordeal. The biggest problem is that there just aren't too many laughs once the fantasy segment takes over. Basically we see Popeye with a couple kids who turn out to be demons and cause all sorts of havoc. The animation is quite good but more laughs were certainly needed.
