Trivia

Many of the locations featured in the movie are actual locations found in Dallas Texas (e.g., the Texas Club, Reunion Arena, Dallas City Hall.) However, the stainless steel building of the "Moore Company" in the movie is actually the Dallas Federal Reserve Bank (K-11) which is located in the cultural district of Dallas. See more »

Goofs

When Sara originally makes up the "contract" between herself and Joe, she does not sign her name on the bottom, writing only "One Million Dollars". Later on when Joe shows her the contract, her name is signed on the bottom. See more »

Ray Harris: [mocking Gordon] 'This better get done, or else I'll hang your ass out to dry'. Jesus! A redneck telling a black man he gonna hang him! That's the new millennium.

Decent Comedy
16 February 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't know why everybody is bashing this little movie. Granted, it's not an "extraordinary film" nor is it Oscar material, but it does get the job done, and that is to entertain for an hour and a half. Matthew Perry's character is not that far removed from what he does in "Friends", so if you like "Friends" style of humor, you'll have no problem enjoying "Serving Sara". The premise of a guy delivering court notices isn't very attractive, but the movie does a fine job in stretching this premise and making it funny. Liz Hurley looks, as always, hot and Bruce Campbell(EVIL DEAD) is funny as the Texas business Honcho trying to divorce his wife.

I actually had my reservations about watching this one, because neither the title nor the cast was that appealing to me at first, but again, I must confess that I did enjoy this little sucker and I'd be lying if I told you otherwise. 7* out of 10*!
