It is difficult to imagine why the management of Cineplex decided to show this film at the new Garden City complex rather than the certified money-maker Gangs of New York, which instead starts today at the old cinema on Wilson Road.
A film like Serving Sara, which is showing at Cine 2 Garden City from today, can be little more than a fill-in. And maybe that is what it is, a fill-in while Catch Me If You Can pulls in the crowd in Cine 1.
Whatever the reason, in this supposedly romantic comedy, Matthew Perry stars as Joe Tyler, a process server trying to serve divorce papers on the beautiful Sara Moore (Elizabeth Hurley). Married to the womanising rich Texican Gordon Moore (Bruce Campbell), she makes a deal with Joe, if he serves Gordon first, which means she will get a bigger settlement, she will give him a million-dollar commission.
Along the way, they face some difficulties, including Saraâ€™s husband and Joelâ€™s stupidly aggressive rival, and the growing romance between the two.
