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.
Brian Costello

Predictable comedy has profanity, iffy humor, and violence.

Quick-paced though it may be, Sara just doesn't serve it up fast enough.
Tyler Hanley
Palo Alto Weekly

One clever concept, several witty comedians, and many commonplace scenarios means Serving Sara will be served more at Blockbuster than at the multiplexes.

Filmmakers have to dig deep to sink this low. Fortunately for all involved, this movie is likely to disappear as quickly as an ice cube thrown into a pot of boiling water.

Filled with artificial sweetener, and ultimately not satisfying enough.

There's something for most everyone to hate in Serving Sara, a screwball comedy in which jokes cross the plate like sinkers.

A broadly played, lowbrow comedy in which the cast delivers mildly amusing performances and no farm animals were injured by any of the gags.

With the exception of some fleetingly amusing improvisations by Cedric the Entertainer as Perry's boss, there isn't a redeeming moment here.

A truly lightweight forgettable piece of fluff which will barely make a blip either in the cinemas or on video.

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

Unfunny and lacking any sense of commitment to or affection for its characters, the Reginald Hudlin comedy relies on toilet humor, ethnic slurs.

Serving Sara should be subpoenaed for promoting itself as a film with laughs in it.

The film is a disaster all around.

Perry's biting and bitter sarcasm helps fill the gaping holes left in the script by the studio weasels that digested it.

Crass and joyless.

Late summer is often the dumping ground for comedies that go flat or romances that fizzle. Sara is both.

The jokes are telegraphed so far in advance they must have been lost in the mail.

...excruciatingly numb and mindless romantic comedy. There's nothing here that the main leads or supporting players can do to serve Sara her just desserts.

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.
