Beck also wrote music for other popular television programs namely The Practice and Angel. Majority of Beck’s body of work, however, is on film score composition.

The Guilt Trip was originally called My Mother’s Curse. It’s still unclear why they changed the name. It’s a comedy about an inventor going on a road trip across America with his mother. The film marks Barbra Streisand’s return to the big screen in a leading role since 1996’s The Mirror Has Two Faces. She has appeared in 2004’s Meet The Fockers and its sequel Little Fockers in 2010 but both of these were supporting roles. Seth Rogen and Streisand play a mother and son who go for a cross-country trip, having adventures and misadventures along the way. The film also stars Colin Hanks, Adam Scott, Brett Cullen, Yvonne Strahovski, Casey Wilson and Danny Pudi.
