While Emily is more a Type A planner who hates disruptions and inconveniences, Simon is a go-with-the-flow type who sees the brightside to any misfortune. So, having to rely upon one another to get to their final destination tests their will, but also provides ample opportunity to get to know each other and, perhaps even, fall in love.

As a romance starts to blossom, Kendall's farm is sabotaged, leaving her to wonder about Clint's true intentions.

------------ End of Press Release --------------

Looks like these 5 new Christmas movies on UPtv - will be cheerful and UPlifting!

If you love the outdoor country life, you are going to enjoy "Christmas on the Range," starring Erin Cahill. I have previewed this movie and it has a "J.L. Family Ranch" feel to it.

I am looking forward to seeing "Mistletoe Magic," simply because it looks lighthearted and fun, and it stars Jessica Sipos ("Chesapeake Shores") and Stephen Huszar ("A Homecoming for the Holidays") and I can't wait to see the other premieres, too, including the third musical installment in the "A Very Country Christmas" series!

Which Christmas movie are you looking forward to seeing?

Joyous Christmas Blessings! Net


  1. As for me; I’m gonna watch “A Ring for Christmas”, & “Christmas on the Range”

  2. Michael Gross is in “A Ring for Christmas”

  3. I recall seeing pictures about A Ring for Christmas last year.


  4. So this more or less is all the Christmas movies which will premiere this year.

    Looking forward to Mistletoe Magic, I was hoping someone would pick it up - Stephen Huszar is one of my favoutite actors now - I'm really hoping there will be more Ruby Herring Mysteries - Stephen and Taylor Cole really make a good partnership.

  5. Looking forward to seeing all these.

  6. I'm putting all of these movies on my calendar. I think at this point we can depend on UPTV to not cave to the culture so they deserve my support.

    1. 100% agree! I too, plan to give my support. I also serve on their TV Programmers Group and Movie Club, as a viewer, I answer surveys which gives them feedback from we who are looking for family friendly, uplifting programming.

  7. I’m gonna watch Mistletoe Magic

  8. Thanks so much for the UPtv Christmas movie list!!

  9. This is an easy pick for me Net. Mistletoe Magic! It is starring Stephen Huszar. He is great in Ruby Herring Mysteries with Taylor Cole. Actually, all his movies have been fun.

  10. All of them should be Good can't wait

  11. Hey Net!
    Do you have an update on when the Uptv movies app will be out?

    1. I will check into that for ya... Stay tuned! :)

    2. Hey Net! I just saw that it was out today. I downloaded it:)

  12. A Ring for Christmas. I think I'm just not a part of the UPtv demographic (I should know this by now!). I watched about a third to a half of this movie and then just gave up. It's sooooo predictable and sooooo "young" and unbelievable (and i'm soooo not young!:)). I think lots of folks will like this movie, especially teens and tweens, but it just wasn't my cup of tea. Up to the point where I stopped watching, it was basically family friendly. However, they did show the young people drinking alcohol in a bar, so some people might want to be careful when watching with their younger kids; they didn't necessarily glorify the drinking but it was just accepted that that's what all young people do when they get together at Christmas -- and most of these young people looked like they were still in high school and should not be at a bar drinking.

  13. Okay, so I might already be changing my mind about UPtv since my last review. I usually feel like my middle-aged self is not part of their target audience, which seems to me to be tweens/teens/young adults. However, I really enjoyed A Very Country Christmas Homecoming. I think I liked the first Christmas movie in the series best, and I never saw the wedding movie, but this current movie is cute and family friendly. I really appreciate having Deana Carter as part of this cast, she adds substance to the movies. And the song that the little girl sang at the end of this was lovely, such a beautiful voice (I wonder if that was really the young actress singing?). Not sure yet if this is a keeper for my dvr, but I will definitely re-watch it.

  14. Mistletoe Magic. Cute movie. Parts of it were silly and odd, but I quite liked this movie, it was sweet (and how can you not like a movie with Stephen Huszar in it?!?). Probably wouldn't buy this one or keep it on my dvr, but would definitely watch it next year.
    Family friendly.

  15. Dashing Home for Christmas. Well, that was really cute! Reminiscent of Planes, Trains & Automobiles but with a romance and no Steve Martin or John Candy. The lead actor and actress were perfect for their roles (he is just a young, cutie patootie, all around nice guy). The "big conflict" that every story has to have was a bit contrived, and the very end of the movie was a bit anti-climactic, but, overall, it was a good movie. It would have been a "keeper" for my dvr but I accidentally deleted it - oops. Family friendly.
