Dark Horizons

A truly lightweight forgettable piece of fluff which will barely make a blip either in the cinemas or on video.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

Lame, limp, unappealing, incompetent, clueless -- these are the kindest words I can come up with to describe this film.

Neither Perry nor Hurley displays a gift for romantic nonsense, and it's difficult to detect any real or faked sexual chemistry between the two stars.

It's not pretty watching this likable cast floundering in search of something funny to do.

If it's not too late -- and, seriously, I hope it's not -- Hurley and Perry better clinch some more substantial roles quick, maybe even straight dramatics, because they're both capable.

Serving Sara is so close to "fun little diversion" that it makes the parts that don?t work hurt more than they really should.

Its sole purpose appears to be to give Perry something to occupy his time during the yearly hiatus from Friends. Perhaps he should have taken a vacation instead.

All people involved in this movie should be served with papers demanding that they never collaborate on anything ever again.

Quick-paced though it may be, Sara just doesn't serve it up fast enough.
Jean Oppenheimer
New Times
August 29, 2002
The dialogue is witless, the situations are lame, the humor juvenile and the chemistry between the stars nonexistent.

The plot fluctuations unfold as predictably as any other cross-country buddy-buddy flick you care to mention.
Philip Booth
Orlando Weekly
August 29, 2002
It's a glorified sitcom, and a long, unfunny one at that.

The movie itself is a cattle ranch full of joke droppings and mooing shtick not worth stepping in.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
August 28, 2002
Scarcely worth a mention apart from reporting on the number of tumbleweeds blowing through the empty theatres graced with its company.

Kirk Honeycutt
Hollywood Reporter
August 28, 2002
A broadly played, lowbrow comedy in which the cast delivers mildly amusing performances and no farm animals were injured by any of the gags.
Joshua Tyler
August 27, 2002
Perry's biting and bitter sarcasm helps fill the gaping holes left in the script by the studio weasels that digested it.

Village Voice

With Vicodin-sharp timing, Perry wavers from glib to glazed, seeming to openly rue his miscasting as palookaville process server Joe Tyler.
Susan Granger
August 27, 2002
There are many definitions of 'time waster' but this movie must surely be one of them.
| Original Score: 1/10
Mark Palermo
Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
August 26, 2002
As a romantic couple, Perry and Hurley have all the chemistry of roadkill and a bran muffin.
Jonathan R. Perry
Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)
August 26, 2002
This mind-numbing comic void never generates enough electricity to brown an English muffin.
| Original Score: 0.5/4
