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.
50
When Serving Sara reaches beyond its grasp and dreams big, Perry and Hurley float the movie on aplomb and wit. When the film gears down for slower-paced set pieces and disposable villains, its stars find themselves knee-deep in a giant comedy cow pie.

Romantic screwball comedies are supposed to be at least a little romantic, but there's no chemistry between Perry and Hurley.

New York Post
Even dumber than Perry's "Three to Tango," this latest sitcommy exercise is sporadically funny in spite of itself -- and not quite as dreadful as you would suspect.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Serving Sara, which often feels more like serving time, is one of those tortured Hollywood romantic comedies that starts with a passable premise and turns into an inventory of flat gags and weak lines set against a travelogue backdrop.

Entertainment Weekly
The few jaunty, ''Friends''-inflected lines Perry does get off are lost among the cow pies.

How inept is Serving Sara? It makes even Elizabeth Hurley seem graceless and ugly.

New York Daily News
Serving Sara is D.O.A., with nary a laugh to be found.
25
Perry and Hurley don't have much chemistry, and the story is so dumb you might want to sue it for stupidity.

Miami Herald
Downright terrible: impossible to enjoy, impossible to believe.

ReelViews
Defined by three characteristics. It is as stupid as a decapitated worm. It is as irritating as a mosquito buzzing around one's head. And it is as funny as "Schindler's List."
