    Of the heels of the exceptional 'Lincoln' comes the lackluster 'Hyde Park on Hudson'. Its a movie about the affair between President Roosevelt and his distant cousin; and it' also accounts the weekend visit of the King and Queen of the UK in 1939. I was hardly impressed with this this dull, ditsy biopics, that does nothing to advance this president or the events that took place.

I was hardly impressed with this this dull, ditsy biopics, that does nothing to advance this president or the events that took place. It's not that the subject was bad, it's the way the story was written and directed that made it lame. Bombarded with lazy narrations, irked by the distasteful presentation of the facts and repulsed by its baity approach, I could barely find it in me to write this review. Though there was high production value and efforts made by Bill Murray to charm; the film was simply an un-insightful dud, that's sure to be forgotten in a matter of minutes. Expand

    The movie hinges on Murray's turn as FDR, and frankly, he comes up wanting.

    Disappointing given the talent and situation, dull as ditchwater and historically suspect, another "The King's Speech" it definitely is not. Nice costumes, though.

    Never elevated beyond much more than mere presidential puffery.
