Is Larry King Qualified To Give An Opinion On Movies??

On Friday night we were at the movies. They were showing an ad for some new movie out on DVD — I think it was “The Good Shepard”. Every other quote in the ad was from Larry King. When did we start caring what Larry King thinks about movies? Did he go back to school and I missed it? Sure, everyone’s allowed to have opinions — I’ve even voiced a few of mine from time to time. But WHY are the movie studios using him as a credible “blurb provider”? Am I the only one who thinks this is really odd? If they are going to tell me what Larry King thinks, they might as well do the whole CNN family. Except Aaron Brown. I don’t really care what he thinks of “The Last Mimzy”.
