很可惜二部片的編劇和導演都太弱，但Streep總是頗有可看，尤其在後者更是硬生生把整部戲撐起來。Ricki and the Flash（臺譯：搖滾女王）是為她量身訂作的，因為編劇Diablo Cody覺得女演員在好萊塢只要過了五十歲，就少有重要角色可演。話雖如此，全片的劇本與導演有太多參差不齊處，調性不甚統一，女主角與前夫、和兒女過往長久的衝突並沒有完足鋪陳，快樂的結局也太在意料之中；女主角第二春的感情戲的開展也沒寫得很好。可惜了一干演員，包括當初Sophie's Choice - 1982 Film中與她戲中互動極佳的Kevin Kline、很會唱歌但無從表現的Audra McDonald、Ben Platt。有趣的是，片中演Streep女兒的Mamie Gummer在一些側面鏡頭中與Streep實在是太像了—因為二人在現實生活中的確是母女。只是當然啦，演技是無法直接遺傳的。
Music of the Heart改編自真人真事，講述Roberta Guaspari在失婚之際如何扶養一對兒子、並在公立學校爭取到工作、教授小提琴，並創立Opus 118 Harlem School of Music。Guaspari一路抵抗偏見、關心問題家庭的兒童、以及努力籌措經費、最後舉辦音樂會募款、並獲得音樂界明星相助的故事，的確有許多可著墨的，可惜全片頗為鬆散，得靠Streep獨撐大局，即使片中還有優秀的Angela Bassett、以及可愛的童星Michael Angarano。全片最後的音樂會請到了Arnold Steinhardt（Guarneri String Quartet一小提琴）、Issac Stern、Itzhak Perlman、Joshua Bell、爵士小提琴家Mark O'Connor、Karen Briggs, Violinist Page ll等人。只是這樣以音樂為主題的電影，配樂卻相當漫不經心地選了數首頗不搭尬的廉價流行歌，實在極為諷刺。
有趣的是，片中當一位黑人母親要把兒子從小提琴班帶走時，她對Guaspari說，她兒子不需要學「死掉的白人寫的音樂」－這點在2020年美國 #黑命貴 （ ）浪潮中，的確被拿來檢討古典音樂。但Streep演的Guaspari後來和她說，妳應該看看妳兒子學琴時開心的表情，何況妳不會因為兒子說想打網球而和他說，那是「白人的運動」吧？
（附帶一提，這部片原本女主角人選是Madonna！光用想的就覺得可怕>< 而且 Evita - The Musical電影版被她搶去演還不夠嗎？）

Meryl Streep為了拍電影Music of The Heart (1999) 學了小提琴，為了Ricki and the Flash (2015) 學了吉他，而且在後者唱搖滾唱得有模有樣，在中段呼大麻唱抒情曲一段尤其出色。這女人難道不能厚道點、留點飯給別人吃嗎？XD
