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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
