A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

There's lots of Hollywood name dropping and some mild drama, but the series underscores the importance of family.

Positive Role Models & Representations

The Eastwoods are a loving family and Dina Eastwood appears as a doting mother and animal lover. The kids are respectful, but occasionally the teenagers talk about sneaking around and/or disobeying their parents (but they usually don't).

Violence

Strong arguments sometimes erupt between family members and boyfriends. Excerpts from Clint Eastwood's films feature guns.

Sex

Photography shoots feature women in sexy outfits/positions. Occasional nudity blurred. Comical references to pregnancy.

Language

Words like "ass" audible. Stronger vocab bleeped.

Consumerism

The series is a promotional vehicle for the vocal band the Overtones. Contains lots of Hollywood name dropping. Carmel, California haunts, including Eastwood's restaurants, are visible, but the logos are not prominent.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Occasional drinking (wine) is visible during dinner and social/promotional events.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Mrs. Eastwood & Company is a reality series featuring members of actor/director Clint Eastwood's family and contains some swearing ("ass," "hell"; stronger vocab bleeped), a few strong arguments, and some sexy modeling shoots. Occasional nudity is blurred. Homosexuality is a theme in the show. The series also acts as a promotional vehicle for the Overtones, a singing group that Dina Eastwood is promoting.

Great Show!

I like this show as it's not like other "reality" shows. No one is overly made up, drives expensive sports cars or is dripping with jewelry. Di... Continue reading

What's the story?

MRS. EASTWOOD & COMPANY is a reality series starring actress/promoter Dina Eastwood, wife of actor/director Clint Eastwood, their daughter Morgan, and stepdaughter Francesca (from the actor's previous relationship with Frances Fisher). Cameras follow Dina as she runs her household, mentors her kids, and manages the Overtones, a South African vocal group that is trying to break into the American music scene. Adding to the fray is Dina's comical brother Dominic, Francesca's boyfriend Tyler, and Lisa Thrash, the Eastwood's straightforward housekeeper. There's never a dull moment, but throughout it all the gang never forgets how important it is to be a close family.

Is it any good?

From teenage drama surrounding belly button piercings to dealing with the difficulties of coming out of the closet, Mrs. Eastwood & Company features some mild drama designed to satisfy reality show fans while promoting Dina Eastwood's music venture. It also showcases some of Francesca's efforts to launch herself into the modeling scene.

Despite some arguments and conflicted moments, the overall series is pretty lighthearted, and shows a family that is well-adjusted and loving towards each other. It's entertaining, but when you get right down to it, it's a show that offers a voyeuristic look into the lives of a family whose every day lives wouldn't be particularly interesting if their patriarch wasn't an international movie star.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the reasons why people have their own reality shows? Did you know that reality shows are primarily used as a promotional device? Do you think that most people who watch them are aware of this?

  • How much of this show seems real and what seems staged?
