One of the Best of the Series

Spree Lunch (1957)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Popeye and Bluto open restaurants right across from one another so when Wimpy comes walking by they must fight to try and get his business.

SPREE LUNCH was the next to last Popeye short and it's one of the best. This one here was highly creative in regards to what it does in order to get a laugh and the film is willing to do just about anything for that laugh. There are many highlights to be found here including some wonderful gags being played as Wimpy is a pawn in the game as he gets dragged, sneezed and blown from one location to the next. This all leads up to a wild food fight where Wimpy is certainly the winner. If you're a fan of Popeye then you're going to love this short because it's just so wild, over-the-top and downright fun. It's certainly one of the best that you're going to see.
