Serving Sara | 2002 | PG-13 | - 4.4.5

A process server (Matthew Perry) down on his luck is given the assignment to serve a woman (Elizabeth Hurley) with divorce papers. After he does, however, she offers him an even better deal, and together they try to serve her wealthy husband before he sells their Texas cattle ranch and keeps all the profits for himself. Also with Bruce Campbell, Amy Adams and Vincent Pastore. [1:40]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A man's arm is thrust into the anus of a bull and the man is stuck there while the bull mounts a pretend cow and thrusts as the pretend cow makes moaning noises. Two men talk about masturbating an impotent bull. Men and women kiss a few times, and a man and a woman look at each other flirtingly and they kiss. A woman asks a man "do you want to have sex?" We see a woman undressing behind frosted glass (we see a flesh-toned silhouette). A woman rides an electric bull, suggestively thrusting her hips and rubbing her thighs. A man and a woman sleep in bed together. A woman lifts her shirt in front of a man, and judging from his reaction, she's exposing her bare breasts to him (we see her bare back). A woman "flexes" her cleavage at a man. We see a woman wrapped in a towel; we see cleavage and her bare shoulders are exposed. A woman's pant leg gets caught in the belt of a luggage conveyor, the pant leg is torn off and we see her lace panties. A man falls on top of a woman who is lying down. Two women covered with seaweed are shown lying on tables in a spa. A woman wears tight-fitting satin pajamas and we can see the outline of her nipples. A man throws kisses at two women. Women wear outfits that reveal cleavage, bare shoulders, backs, abdomens, and thighs.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A man is shot at several times and we hear him groan as he goes off screen. A man and a woman are shot at as they run and then drive away. A man rams his truck into the front end of a car (the passengers get out just before the impact). A man is punched in the face, thrown onto the hood of his car, kicked and thrown onto the street by two men (he ends up with a bloody nose). A woman punches a man, kicks him, then knees him in the face, holds him in a headlock, throws him to the floor and punches him in the face (we see his bloody nose). A man is tied to and dangles from a pole as another man threatens him for information. A dog jumps on a man's neck, growling and snarling (we see the man later with bloody scratches on his face and knuckles). A man and a woman get stuck on a luggage conveyor, they are nearly crushed by a directional device and the woman's pant leg gets caught in the belt. A man chases another man through a herd of steer statues and runs into one getting knocked to the ground. We hear squishy sounds when a nurse removes buckshot from a man's back and when she shaves his back with a surgical saw, we hear her cut him (the saw drags) and hear him yell. Two injured men on stretchers punch and shove each other. Two men reach for their guns when a man reaches into his jacket. People in a crowd threaten a man with guns when they are told that he is carrying the Ebola virus. A man is nearly hit by jumping dirt bikes, another man is nearly hit by a truck that runs into yet another man (we see the man who's hit wiggling his boots and hear him yelling). A man breaks a window, jumps through, slides down elevator cables and climbs through the ceiling of an elevator car. A flaming tire rolls through the lobby of an apartment building and two men scramble to put out the fire. A man is tossed off an electric bull. A man chases a woman, runs into people and knocks things over. Three men argue abusively throughout the movie and there is a lot of yelling and verbal threatening. We see a dead mouse on the floor, and a man has snake heads on his boots. A man steps in a big cow pie and makes a squishy sound. A man spits several times (a couple of times he is spitting out bad wine), a man flatulates, and a bull flatulates in a man's face. A roll of paper money falls out of a hole, which is on the backside of a statue of a bull. We see a picture of an electric chair on a billboard. People drive huge trucks and dirt bikes over ridges in a monster truck show.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
