UPtv MAY 2021 TV Movie Premieres ๐ŸŒž SEE HERE:

We were showered with movies in April on UPtv - and more are flowering out in May!

In fact, NEW Movies are just warming UP on UPtv, as the network will continue premiering NEW MOVIES on Sunday nights starting with Just for the Summer, starring Hayley Sales and Brant Daugherty, and after Mother's Day, Cooking Up Love, starring Rachel Bles and Stephen Huszar.

Also, look for wedding-themed movies coming to UPtv in June!

See details on the May Movie Premieres below...

Just for the Summer

Original Air Date: May 2, 2021

Starring: Hayley Sales and Brant Daugherty

Story-line via UPtv: English teacher Penelope Campbell loves her annual summer vacations visiting her Grandma Dot, despite Dot’s constant attempts to set her up with every single man in town. This year, she bumps into Jason Humphrey, none other than her childhood sweetheart, who is still as handsome and charming as ever. It’s a little awkward at first but the conversation soon turns to Jason’s own Grandma Sophie, who keeps doing the same to him! In order to evade the efforts of their matchmaking grandmothers, they make a pact pretending to date each other, but will the old sparks return?


"Loved "Just For The Summer". It is family friendly, but if seeing a guy without his shirt is offensive, you might reconsider. It is only one scene. Don't know why they felt that necessary. So happy to see the little girl from "The Angel Tree" in this. The two grandmas are funny.This is a keeper for me. Want this DVD!" ~kitkat

"Such a cute movie! I just loved the meddling grandma's - they were both so much fun. The fake dating is somewhat deceitful - so yes, there is some lying by omission. Hayley Sales and Brant Daugherty are a delightful match. If you liked Brant in the Hallmark movie, Mingle All the Way where he & Jen Lilley "pretended" to date, then you will most likely enjoy this one, too! And, yes, as kitkat mentioned, there is a scene where Brant Daugherty is shirtless on the dock by his sailboat. Besides that, it is very family friendly!" ~Net


Cooking Up Love

Original Air Date: May 16, 2021

Starring: Rachel Bles and Stephen Huszar

Story-line via UPtv: On a lark, Zoey rents a food truck and enters a reality TV competition. Heat rises between her and the handsome founder of a fast food chain, but when Zoey finds out he’s a judge in the contest, things quickly fizzle. Zoey’s determined to win fair and square and she suspects ‘Mr-Too-Good-To-Be-True’ is really after her sauce recipe, not her heart.

UPdate: I heard from my friend at UPtv, and these two movies are the only new ones in May, but be sure to look for more premieres coming in June!

I'm personally super excited to finally see "Just for the Summer." Sure, it's more fake-dating, but the promos look soooo cute with the meddling grandmothers! And, how beautiful is that poster for "Cooking Up Love?" It looks so fresh and yummy! Plus, it's great to see two excellent, handsome leading men who are quite recognizable from Hallmark - Brant Daugherty and Stephen Huszar! Am I right, ladies?

Hope you enjoyed this movie information. Please note: I have NOT pre-screened these films. If you would like to post a review on whether a film is family-friendly, please share in comments.

Blessings on your day! Net


  1. Happy days - these are two of my favourite actors.

    I was really hoping Uptv would air these movies at some stage.

  2. Both these movies look really good. Is there not a new movie on Mothers Day?

    1. Anna, UPtv is taking a break on Mother's Day from the movies. They are playing a marathon of Gilmore Girls that day instead.

  3. Be still my heart! Two of my favorite guys! Net, you made my day with this great news. Thanks so much!

    1. kitkat, I'm so delighted this news made your day! They both look so good. I think I'm going to feel like I'm watching Hallmark instead of UPtv with these actors.

      By the way, I heard back from my friend at UP and these are the only two premieres in May, but we should have at least 3 new ones in June, minus Father's Day.

  4. Net, I review movies for Up TV, however I do not get a preview. I give input through a program they have, after the movie shows, and we as part of this program, give input as they are developing movies, picking titles, etc.. I will gladly post my review in comments after each movie premiers to public. I have been pleased that they are improving, and to see faces we recognize from Hallmark and other things. Thanks for all you do here! Blessings, Becky P.

    1. Becky P., I would love for you to share your reviews here with us. That would be great!

      I also receive surveys from UPtv - it's a wonderful way to give feedback on the network and what we'd like to see in the future.

      I have been so blessed by all the people who visit here, who desire to have family friendly entertainment and share with us. Reviewing each movie really took off with the 2020 Christmas movie season, and since then, I believe we've reviewed nearly each one. With all the movies that keep coming out, we would love to have you join in with us!

      Welcome to the *It's a Wonderful Movie* family, Becky... we are so happy to have you here! :)

      Blessings to you!!! :)

  5. Net, loved your posting of Amazing Grace and the words thereafter. Now more than ever we need to show God's love to one another, be kind to one another and pray for each other. I am so thankful for my salvation through Jesus Christ. I could never make it on my own. God bless you and all our brothers and sisters on this site. RG

    1. RG - Bless you! I'm so glad you enjoyed this post. There's nothing quite like Amazing Grace, is there, and the beauty of being lost and found in HIM!

      I love your comment about loving each other more - that's definitely want the world needs today - God's love!

      God bless you dear friend!

  6. Thank you, Net! These look like cute movies.

    Looking forward to the June wedding ones.


    1. Misty, Happy to share - I think UP is really upping their game this year! :)

  7. The pattern was pretty similar last year but I'm hoping they break it for July and August - last year they only had 2 new movies in July and 1 in August although I'm hoping it was something to do with the effect of Covid.

    I'm really enjoying UP's programme this year and will be very disappointed if they keep to the same strategy this summer.

  8. I found on Amazon a dvd collection of 3 for Martha's Vineyard Mysteries, but I have never seen them for sale just that they don't know if or when they will be back in stock. Anyone have any different news on this set?

    1. I know what you mean - I added the Martha's Vineyard Mysteries - Collection One DVD to my saved list at Amazon, hoping it would become available so I could share it, and it's still not available.

      According to my Amazon list, it says I added it on April 13, over two weeks. I'm rather surprised the status hasn't changed since then, but I'll try to keep an eye on it. Please let me know if you also catch any changes.

      Thank you for sharing! :)

  9. These 2 movies look super cute Net! I’m in! Some of the other up movies have been kinda blah lately. IMO sorry if anyone loved them but not many have even looked as good as these 2 do.

    Ps... loved the April showers ๐ŸŒง bring May flowers ๐ŸŒทreference!

  10. Has anyone heard if Season 8 of WCTH will be released as a set aw were Seasons 6 & 7?

    The DVDs for the two episode versions are from Shout! Factory. I have emailed them with this question.

    1. Namegirl, I haven't heard any news on this, yet, but I'm totally keeping my eyes peeled for it! Hoping we hear something soon!
