Serving Sara is the predictable romantic comedy starring Matthew Perry and
Elizabeth Hurly as two people with a purpose who eventually fall in love.
Perry plays Joe, a process server whose luck is about to change when he meets
Sara (Hurly), after delivering her some divorce papers from her flamboyant
Texan husband, Gordon Moore (played by Bruce Campbell). (A side-note to
Australians: A process server is a person who delivers court appearances to
people) The duo, Joe and Sara then pair up for a road trip comedy where
they must avoid Joe's fellow process server (played by Vincent Pastore)
in order to successfully deliver the divorce papers to Gordon Moore so they
can both share in his 18 million dollar fortune.
main storyline of Serving Sara is unfortunately a little too predictable at
the best of times and certain aspects of the movie drag on. The comedy is
mixed bag of hit and miss laughs but fortunately the chemistry between Perry
and Hurly helps save the movie. You will probably get a few laughs from this
movie, especially one scene near the end where Perry is pretending to be a
Veterinarian and he must assist in milking a bull. Easily the highlight of the
movie and an extremely entertaining scene. The movie ends as all do all
romantic comedies with Perry and Hurly falling in love and happily living ever
video quality of Serving Sara is commendable and features 16:9 enhanced
widescreen that contains crystal clear images and bright colours. Whereas the
audio quality of Serving Sara is probably the most impressive feature of the
movie and successfully uses Dolby Digital 5.1 to its advantage, especially the
musical score of Marcus Miller that helps set the atmosphere of this
light-hearted romantic comedy.
Serving Sara contains the stock standard extras that include the Director's
audio commentary, deleted scenes, outtakes and the theatrical trailer.
Obviously Hurly and Perry had better things to do than appear on the audio
commentary for this movie considering how badly it performed at the Box
conclusion, Serving Sara isn't the most ingenious or comedic film of 2003 on
DVD but it does have its moments that may help you get through a boring night
at home. Probably not worth adding to your DVD collection but if you happen to
see this movie at the Video Store, a rental wouldn't be such a bad choice.
