Robin Williams and Shelley Duvall exude overpowering charm in Robert Altman’s endearing tribute to the original Fleischer Brothers spinach-scarfing sailor man. Popeye goes searching for his father but washes ashore after a storm and winds up meeting his beloved Olive Oyl. But Olive’s fiancé, Bluto isn’t going to step aside without a fight. A delightful and quirky manic musical fantasy world from one of the great masters of American cinema.
