There's still something vaguely enjoyable about the film, as there has been with most of Matthew Perry's movies.

Cedric the Entertainer is absolutely hilarious as a frustrated boss.

Surprisingly amusing.

The script is clever enough to give Perry a somewhat dignified role as a sarcastic, educated charmer down on his luck.

It can only be recommended as a very mild rental...ya know, one of those that you pick up because you've already seen everything else.

Predictable comedy has profanity, iffy humor, and violence.

[There's] nary a laugh to be found.

Perry smirks and mugs throughout while Hurley just seems massively bored, practically yawning even while hoisting her shirt for the hotel clerk.

Perry and Hurley banter and bicker in the old screwball tradition, and it's clear from the start that they're supposed to fall in love. They just don't sell it with much conviction.

The spectacularly bland comedy Serving Sara offers us a TV actor and a fashion mannequin in lieu of actual movie stars.

A third-rate conflation of Midnight Run and It Happened One Night, Serving Sara relies heavily on Perry's perpetually exasperated shtick, which fits more comfortably among the democratic ensemble of TV's Friends.

This movie doesn't play; it just lies there, waiting to be kicked around by anyone unfortunate enough to have shelled out good money to see it.

Perry and Hurley don't have much chemistry, and the story is so dumb you might want to sue it for stupidity.

An unfunny, unpleasant romance comedy entry...

Romantic comedy ought to have some romance and laughs, but this extraordinarily flat effort has neither.

Crass and joyless.

Filled with artificial sweetener, and ultimately not satisfying enough.

Any effort anyone puts forth is obviously for naught when the movie's supposedly showstopping set piece has Perry stick his arm up a bull's anus to tickle his prostate.
