Singer Jill Sobule, best known for her hit song "I Kissed a Girl" in 1995, can be briefly seen at the beginning. She's the singer warming up during and immediately after the movie title is shown. See more »

First of all, this was NOT a "Carole King biopic." The character is called Denise Waverly, NOT Carole King. The character was loosely based on Carole King, just as other characters were LOOSELY based on people from the era.
Secondly, phony soundtrack? Ummmmmm . . .ok, wanna check out the composers on the soundtrack??
Finally, calling Ileanna Douglas a "dog" or "ugly" was perhaps the stupidest comment I have EVER seen on IMDB, and believe me, I've seen many stupid comments. Not only is she beautiful, she is also a wonderful actress who does an amazing job in this film. AND even if she was "ugly" (not my words), why should that hinder your enjoyment of the film? Give me a break.
If you don't like a film, at least do us all the favor of giving good reasons and at least ATTEMPT to make intelligent comments rather than the half-baked crap we see here.
This film was excellent. The soundtrack was amazing, the actors were even more amazing. 10/10
