Under the Radar

The performances across the board are strong, but it's Murray who's most impressive.

[It] may have the look of a prestige picture, but it plays more like a version of FDR's life as told by TMZ, focusing on naughty details and ignoring the historical implications of the events depicted.

The potentially sordid FDR-and-Daisy half of the drama is feebly unrewarding, bordering on pointless, and bogged down by ponderous narration.

An unconventional drama that succeeds despite an uneven plot.

The movie is all setting, nothing but plates and countrysides and old cars and absolutely nothing to say. It's a real snore.

The possibilities are endless, but none of them are explored with any depth herein.

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

...you certainly could do worse than enjoy a fanciful little film about a gentle president, his supposedly homely lover and two twittish English people appalled by hot dogs. I just wish they'd gone ahead and changed the names.

April 27, 2013

It's been a long time since Lost in Translation (2003), which is the last time Bill Murray did anything of real note in a film. Here he partially redeems the latter phase of his film career playing pre-war US President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

ABC Radio (Australia)

A delightful piece of historical speculation grounded in historical details and personal recollections that have continually been coming to light over the last seventy years ... Murray is terrific in the part - charming, at ease and cunning as a fox.

The Sunday Age

The issue of FDR's fidelity remains a thorny topic for traditionalists and historians, never mind the light, fluffy - and ultimately disposable - version of events.

There is nothing stirring or sufficiently humorous to engage us; the fact that a serving US President is having secret affairs no longer shocks

Urban Cinefile

With the incongruous casting of Bill Murray as President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Richard Nelson's screenplay concentrates on the personal, offering a somewhat voyeuristic view of the events leading up to the 1939 visit of King George

Even Murray, who never fails to be the most watchable actor in any film, can't prevent Hyde Park On Hudson from being too insipid.

It's not the strongest premise for a movie, though Hyde Park on Hudson somehow contrives to make it seem rather less than the sum of its parts.

Tampa Bay Times

Apparently Franklin Delano Roosevelt's polio paralysis didn't include everything below his waist. At least that's the impression left by Hyde Park on Hudson, which paints the president as a horn dog in chief... This isn't Lincoln, by a longshot.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

When the central drama concerns whether the Royal Couple will eat hot dogs or not, you can tell it's too slender a premise to hang on a film on.

FDR's story is strikingly relevant to how Paralympians strive so hard today to correct our perception of 'disability'.

Tedious PBS middle-brow fare, though not without a few amusing moments in this mostly forgettable historical pic.

It's icky stuff, not helped by Murray giving perhaps the worst performance of his career. And I include Garfield 2.

The film's special success resides in the women's hairdos.
