In spite of the great actors, there was no character development.
I adore Bill Murray but he just doesn't make it as FDR.
The movie started and ended at no where.
Save your money and find another movie that gets somewhere!!

I'd say it was just okay. The actors did a fine job, it was just a little slow in parts. The King and Queen had some very funny lines though.

I thought the movie was interesting and entertaining. Found out a couple of interesting facts. Thought the characters played their parts very well. Scenery was beautiful. A friend said their local news showed film being filmed in Roosevelt's house in Hyde Park. It had some funny scenes. Really enjoyed the king and queen of England and Roosevelt.

I was in college when Bill Murray and the originals of SNL were comedy icons that drove what we all did on Saturday night - we needed to be near a TV set when 11:30 pm hit. Murray has shown how talented he really is with all the roles he has played since then. Playing FDR, he gives you all the idiosyncrasies and mannerisms of a man that was both great and flawed, in such a way that you understand why people admired and followed him. The cast is equally able to lead you through what was a turning point in world history and make you feel like you are there, witnessing the first times that leaders tried to fortify alliances and maneuver the course of the future. The photography is as beautiful as upstate NY actually is... Loved Laura Linney - she so perfect as Daisy!
