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.
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.
