Consensus: A romantic comedy that's neither funny nor particularly romantic, Serving Sara is a forgettable time waster.

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

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

Common Sense Media

Predictable comedy has profanity, iffy humor, and violence.

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

Serving Sara is a very easy going and charming movie. The two leading roles are played wonderfully by Matthew Perry and Elizabeth Hurley. Joe is a process… More

Insanely ridiculous! Some funny scenes, but overall I'd say this is sleep-inducing, as much as sleeping pills!

The only reason it didn't get 1/2 a star is because Bruce Campbell is in it.
