Hyde Park on Hudson Reviews

Under the Radar

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

Big Hollywood

An unconventional drama that succeeds despite an uneven plot.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Bill Murray proves a sound choice as the president who quietly battled polio. So too does Samuel West, as the stammering King George VI.

The List

Whether it bears any resemblance to what actually happened is almost academic in a film that takes a precious moment in time and transforms it into a witty, civilised country house drama.

I enjoyed the movie for what it is, though I wish it had a better sense of itself.

The film bounces jauntily along, it's never less than handsome to look at, and the actors all do fine jobs.

Splendidly splendid. Oscars all around: Murray, Linney, et al.

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

It's a nearly impossibly tall order, but Murray makes it work with an ease that results in the movie-award year's second-best performance as a U.S. president.
