Serving Sara is a 2002 romantic comedy film directed by Reginald Hudlin and written by Jay Scherick and David Ronn. It stars Matthew Perry as a process-server named Joe Tyler who is tasked with serving Sara Moore, who is played by Elizabeth Hurley. Sara Moore is a wealthy, high-society woman who is looking to get a divorce from her husband, Gordon Moore, played by Bruce Campbell. Joe and Sara strike up an unlikely friendship and comedic hijinks ensue as they work together to serve Gordon with divorce papers.

The movie starts with Joe Tyler working as a process-server for a sleazy lawyer named Ray Harris, played by Vincent Pastore. Joe is having trouble making ends meet and is struggling to pay his bills. One day, he is assigned to serve Sara Moore, who is currently going through a nasty divorce with her cheating husband, Gordon. Joe thinks this will be an easy job, but quickly realizes that Sara is smart, sassy, and determined.

Sara hires Joe to serve Gordon with divorce papers, but she also reveals her ulterior motive: Gordon has stolen her prized horse, and she wants Joe's help in getting it back. Joe initially refuses, but Sara offers him a large sum of money, and he decides to take the job. The two embark on a road trip across Texas as they try to track down Gordon and the horse.

Along the way, Joe and Sara encounter a number of obstacles, including angry ranchers, a group of biker chicks, and a crazy ex-girlfriend of Joe's. They also start to develop feelings for each other, despite their vastly different backgrounds. Joe realizes that he is tired of his dead-end job and wants to do something more with his life, while Sara realizes that she wants to be with someone who sees her for who she truly is, rather than just as a socialite trophy wife.

Matthew Perry brings his trademark charm and wit to the role of Joe Tyler, and Elizabeth Hurley shines as the strong, independent Sara Moore. The chemistry between the two leads is palpable, and the comedic timing is spot-on. The supporting cast, including Bruce Campbell as the over-the-top Gordon Moore and Cedric the Entertainer as a rival process-server, add to the film's overall hilarity.

The movie's humor is often crude and over-the-top, but it works well within the context of the story. Serving Sara is a film that doesn't take itself too seriously, and it's all the better for it. It's a classic case of opposites attracting, and it's hard not to root for Joe and Sara to end up together.

Overall, Serving Sara is a fun, lighthearted romantic comedy that will keep you laughing from start to finish. It's a great movie to watch with friends, and it's sure to put a smile on your face.

Serving Sara is a 2002 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 39 minutes. It has received poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.3 and a MetaScore of 18.
