Popeye Movie Summary

You may think that 20th Century Fox and Sony Pictures are the kings of fucking up our beloved comic book heroes on the big screen, but it hasn’t always been that way; Paramount Pictures has held that crown for nearly 35 years…and this is their story.

Popeye, the sailor man, lands one stormy night in the small town of sweet Sweethaven; a short layover in his search for his long-lost Poopdeck Pappy. He is greeted by a greedy tax man who fines him for petty offenses in the name of the Commodore. He even taxed me 45 cents for this very summary. Apparently, there’s a “writing a terrible summary” tax that I didn’t know about.

Popeye renks a room at the Oyl’s bread and breakfast, where he meets their daughter, Olive, played by an amazing actress with a bright, bright future ahead of her, but for now, she is busy preparing for her wedding to a local brute named Bluto…he’s large and he’s hers.
