Hyde Park on Hudson Reviews

Perhaps Hyde Park on Hudson would have been more edifying if it hadn't been released in the wake of The King's Speech.

When the story's leading quartet have to negotiate embarrassing moments - a handjob for Roosevelt administered by Daisy in a bouncing car; eating a hotdog at a picnic for Bertie and Liz - it's Murray's FDR who is most at ease in the sticky situations.

Inoffensive and insubstantial.

This is London

It's a bit antimacassar and too reliant on superior production design and a syrupy score. But if you just watch the acting, it's enough.

Rich Cline

The breezy, entertaining tone of this historical comedy-drama kind of undermines the fact that it centres on one of the most pivotal moments in US-British history.

With such a strong cast, Hyde Park on Hudson should have offered so much more.

Daily Mail [UK]

Despite the best efforts of its talented cast, Hyde Park on Hudson is trivial and novelettish.

Peter Bradshaw

The movie insists on an unearned sentimentality and nostalgia about a situation and a period that is never fully evoked or explored.

Nigel Andrews
Financial Times

The film tinkles on affably, never quite sure of its focus but civilised, gentle, prettily-mannered.

Daily Telegraph

Hyde Park on Hudson has precious little truck with reality, either historical or emotional: it's a thin tale shot with a kind of manic cosiness that belies its slightly creepy plot.

Daily Express

There's much of historical interest here, and it's very well acted, if a little slow.

Matthew Turner

Watchable drama, heightened by a quartet of terrific performances from Murray, Williams, West and Colman, though the plot is ultimately rather slight and never really sparks to life.

Hyde Park is of fleeting interesting to a degree, but always feels like it is missing more exciting historical opportunities at the same time.

A frustrating, wasted opportunity, destined to remain in the shadow of its cinematic sibling.

It's a lightweight, three-star way to kill a couple of hours if you're at a loose end on that lazy bank holiday Sunday.

Somewhat uneven and ultimately underwhelming, but there's plenty to admire and enjoy here nonetheless.

The whole endeavour feels like a hastily cobbled together attempt to cash in on the post-Oscars glory of The King's Speech. In the end, it's entirely forgettable.

Siobhan Synnot

Bill Murray isn't bad as the polio-afflicted 32nd commander in chief. The trouble is that the rest of the film goes adrift in its choices.

Disappointing given the talent and situation, dull as ditchwater and historically suspect ...

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Ultimately, it's just a pleasant little movie where the dramatic highlight is whether or not King George VI will bring himself to eat a hot dog.
