July 26, 2014
[There's] nary a laugh to be found.

The spectacularly bland comedy Serving Sara offers us a TV actor and a fashion mannequin in lieu of actual movie stars.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
June 11, 2013
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.

Romantic comedy ought to have some romance and laughs, but this extraordinarily flat effort has neither.
January 3, 2007
Crass and joyless.
August 29, 2002
The plot fluctuations unfold as predictably as any other cross-country buddy-buddy flick you care to mention.
August 29, 2002
The movie itself is a cattle ranch full of joke droppings and mooing shtick not worth stepping in.

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.
August 27, 2002
With Vicodin-sharp timing, Perry wavers from glib to glazed, seeming to openly rue his miscasting as palookaville process server Joe Tyler.
August 23, 2002
[Hell is] looking down at your watch and realizing Serving Sara isn't even halfway through.
August 23, 2002
Surprisingly amusing.
August 23, 2002
Serving Sara is little more than a mall movie designed to kill time.
August 23, 2002
Late summer is often the dumping ground for comedies that go flat or romances that fizzle. Sara is both.

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

August 23, 2002
Serving Sara is such a miserable excuse for a movie that the constant ringing of a cellphone at its preview screening served only to improve it.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/4
August 23, 2002
Perry isn't the only thing wrong with Serving Sara, but he's the thing that takes a pleasantly mediocre movie and turns it into an unpleasantly mediocre one.

August 23, 2002
While Serving Sara does have a long way to go before it reaches the level of crudity in the latest Austin Powers extravaganza, there's nothing here to match that movie's intermittent moments of inspiration.

Sometimes it feels as if it might have been made in the '70s or '80s, and starred Chevy Chase and Goldie Hawn.

Serving Sara is downright terrible: impossible to enjoy, impossible to believe.

August 23, 2002
How inept is Serving Sara? It makes even Elizabeth Hurley seem graceless and ugly.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
August 23, 2002
Even dumber than Perry's Three to Tango, this latest sitcommy exercise is sporadically funny in spite of itself.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
August 23, 2002
Aiming only to be amiably stupid, the movie still manages to fall short of the target.

I don't know what they're Serving Sara, but I'm sending it back to the kitchen.
August 23, 2002
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.

August 22, 2002
You know a movie is DOA when not even the sight of Liz Hurley in a 'Trailer Trash' glitter T-shirt, tartan miniskirt and lace-up python boots can revive it.
August 22, 2002
With the dog days of August upon us, think of this dog of a movie as the cinematic equivalent of high humidity.
August 22, 2002
Unfunny and lacking any sense of commitment to or affection for its characters, the Reginald Hudlin comedy relies on toilet humor, ethnic slurs.
August 22, 2002
The entire movie is in need of a scented bath.
Full Review | Original Score: D-
August 22, 2002
Stars Matthew Perry and Elizabeth Hurley illicit more than a chuckle, and more jokes land than crash, but ultimately Serving Sara doesn't distinguish itself from the herd.
