[It] fall[s] flat on its feet due to a lack of plot structure and quality dialogue.

As adorable as Bill Murray may be, the ride feels low-rent, and the experience doesn't measure up to seeing Michelle Williams embody Marilyn Monroe.

If there is such a thing as Oscar porn, then Hyde Park on Hudson is as obscene as they come.

Presenting two parallel narratives about the importance of love and fraternity, Hyde Park on Hudson does a remarkable job of taking neither narrative strands particularly seriously.

It seems there is no end of things to cringe at in this mess of a movie.

Murray's screen presence is normally always welcome, however this time he is a victim, (as are the rest of the cast) of weak characterisation that never really delivers.

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).

A tedious affair about a tedious affair.

[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.

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.

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.
March 22, 2013
There is nothing stirring or sufficiently humorous to engage us; the fact that a serving US President is having secret affairs no longer shocks

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.
February 17, 2013
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.
February 8, 2013
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'.
February 5, 2013
Tedious PBS middle-brow fare, though not without a few amusing moments in this mostly forgettable historical pic.
