Larry King: Movie Reviewer?

I may be the only person on earth to notice this. Recently, a series of commercials has been running on TV for the upcoming release of The Pink Panther on DVD. Part of the commercial includes a statement along the line of "Critics say it's 'flat out hilarious.'" They credit this to a reviewer whose name you can't exactly make out because the font is significantly smaller than everything else of the screen. That name, if look close enough, is Larry King. You can find a record of this here.

Was that really the best review the producers could find to air along with the DVD release? Did no actual movie critics like this movie? Why then would Larry King?

Also, related, why does Steve Martin fall down that subway stairwell?
