Well, not a movie, but a television show about a fat guy married to an attractive woman (the theme of many a TV show over the years) that somehow lasted nine seasons on network television. But I wonder whether there were severe restrictions for “The King of Queens” to tape at Shea Stadium, such as the camera crew not being allowed on the grass. For example, the shot at :55 seconds of King (I don’t know Kevin James’s fictional name, not do I care to look it up) running on the field is clearly a green screen, and a bad one at that. We never see him close up on the grass. But whatever; enjoy the clip featuring good old Shea.
