i never thought my opinion would be closer to rex reed's than a.o.scott's, but with excellent acting, humor throughout ,the look of history,and mostly good camerawork -- definitely good enough.

Nice little movie, Missed Opportunity

There were two very compelling stories elbowing each other for screen time, I would love to have seen either better told - the visit of the King and Queen of England on the eve of WWII and the romantic side of a great man... unfortunately both stories were not very well developed. The film was well cast and acted, especially by Bill Murray, but the script didn't give him much to work with. It would have made a fair episode of Masterpiece Theater on PBS. I would recommend it as a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours but, on the whole, was a little disappointed in missing the film it could have been or the film I hoped to see.

Only if you're FDR curious!

Recently visited Hyde Park, so I wanted to see how much was used in the film.....turned out to be mostly exterior scenes . Also curious about Bill Murray, but disappointed. He didn't pull off FDR for me, though his movements as a polio victim were done exceptionally well. The story of that important weekend at Hyde Park, however, was fascinating and delightful.
