Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[There's] nary a laugh to be found."
‑ Jami Bernard, New York Daily News
"Romantic comedy ought to have some romance and laughs, but this extraordinarily flat effort has neither."
‑ Hank Sartin, Chicago Reader
"Perry smirks and mugs throughout while Hurley just seems massively bored, practically yawning even while hoisting her shirt for the hotel clerk."
‑ Leah Rozen, People Magazine
"Perry and Hurley don't have much chemistry, and the story is so dumb you might want to sue it for stupidity."
‑ David Sterritt, Christian Science Monitor
"Filled with artificial sweetener, and ultimately not satisfying enough."
‑ Scott Nash, Three Movie Buffs
"The spectacularly bland comedy Serving Sara offers us a TV actor and a fashion mannequin in lieu of actual movie stars."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Crass and joyless."
‑ Christy Lemire, Associated Press
"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."
‑ Dennis King, Tulsa World
"An unfunny, unpleasant romance comedy entry..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"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."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"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."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"The plot fluctuations unfold as predictably as any other cross-country buddy-buddy flick you care to mention."
‑ John Patterson, L.A. Weekly
"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."
‑ Chris Kaltenbach, Baltimore Sun
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"Hurley in particular is astoundingly awful."
‑ Susan Michals,
