    The movie is quaint, charming and thin, just as the cartoon. You get a good live action version of the short cartoons, with a little story but not too much to force it into being a serious movie. The actors portray their parts, and the visuals represent the cartoon just as you'd expect them too when staying true to them.

    Loved this movie since seeing it in the theatre as a child. Robin Williams is awesome, the songs really grow on you and he supporting cast is excellent.

    The characters look the part, the sets look it too and it even sounds like a living cartoon, but the lack of a discernible plot makes Popeye feel like a bit of a mess. Is Popeye's search for his father the driving force of this movie? If so, there is little actual time spent on the subject. It doesn't really ever feel like anything is being accomplished here. Scenes play out one after the other with very little indication as to where it can and/or will go next. One could even rearrange many of the scenes and there would be little, if any noticeable difference in progression. Also, for a musical, the music in this film is rather uneven. Occasionally, when it works, it's still rather dopey, which pretty much sums this movie up very well - Dopey.
