The TV sitcom "King of Queens" was quite enjoyable in fits & starts, and certainly easy to watch over a bowl of cereal at 7am (the time it was often screened in the UK), but for Kevin James to be rewarded with its television run with rubbish juvenile comedies like this is beyond generous.

As a bumbling security guard who wasn't good enough for the police force, he foils a robbery in his shopping precinct and pulls some dick & fart jokes on the way.

As low-brow as they come, but it was successful enough at the cinema to warrant a sequel (the reason why is beyond my logic).
