The entire film is quite funny, in fact, nothing like the sort of stuffy period piece it's dressed up as.

Murray's FDR dominates the film the way Roosevelt towered over American politics for a decade and a half. That's not always a good thing, because the central character here is supposed to be FDR's sixth cousin Daisy (Laura Linney).

This pleasant drama offers little further insight but will help pass a Sunday afternoon nicely.

The casting of Bill Murray as Franklin Delano Roosevelt is just one of many quirks that makes [the film] the enjoyable diversion that it is.

It was not well reviewed but I was won over by the film's gentle tone and Murray's easy-going benevolence and paternal affection as FDR.

A tedious affair about a tedious affair.

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.

...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.

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.

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 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

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.
