Elizabeth Hurley and Matthew Perry in Serving Sara.

Matthew Perry plays a hapless process server (which is according to this movie the worst job in the world) who is given the assignment of serving divorce papers to a gorgeous New York socialite () whose Texan multi-millionaire husband () has decided to drop her without a word’s warning. Discovering that Texan divorce laws are the most conservative in the world and that she might end up without a penny from her no-good ex, Hurley convinces Perry to tear up the document and serve Campbell papers on her behalf, agreeing to cut her new friend in on the huge settlement she will then receive. It isn’t going to be easy, though; her husband’s got bodyguards, and Perry’s own employer wants to see him fail, giving these two a hell of a challenge to accomplish their goal. The two attractive stars are good-natured about the whole thing, Perry bringing his easy charm and Hurley delivering the brilliant timing she displayed in Bedazzled. Unfortunately, the script doesn’t give them enough obstacles, the direction is inept and the editing is incredibly sloppy.
