Aloha with Love

Original Air Date: May 1, 2022

Starring: Trevor Donovan, Tiffany Smith, Matt Corboy, Kathleen Kinmont, Branscombe Richmond


Story-line via UPtv: Gemma, a big city architect, flies to the Hawaii to handle the estate of her late Aunt. At her Aunt's request, she must first renovate the house. Ben, a handsome country-boy contractor, helps her revive the home and in the process revitalizes Gemma.

Movie Review:

๐ŸŒธ "I am curious about the opinions of others on Aloha With Love. Trevor Donovan is a favorite but this movie did not do him justice. There was no chemistry between the lead lady and Trevor. All those rings in her ears were distracting." ~kitkat


๐ŸŒธ "Aloha with Love was sooo sweet! A big win for UP TV." -Maria

Yellowstone Romance

Original Air Date: May 8, 2022

Starring: Stephanie Bennett, Christopher Russell, Aadila Dosani


Story-line via UPtv: As maid of honor, Olivia plans her best friend’s bridal shower at a ranch where handsome rancher Travis shows her that life, and love, could be great on a ranch.

Movie Review:

๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŽ "Actress Stephanie Bennett (The Nine Lives of Christmas, Listen Out for Love) portrays the main lead Olivia, the big-city girl, who is completely taken off guard when her roommate and best friend, Amber, declares she is getting married after dating a guy for 6 weeks. Olivia thinks it’s too soon for them to make such a commitment, especially since Amber will be moving from New York to live on a ranch in Wyoming.

While Olivia is stewing over Amber’s decision, characters are shown casually drinking at a restaurant/bar setting. To help her friend see the light, Olivia plans a surprise get-a-way to a real-life working ranch, so Amber can get a taste of what life will be like after she marries. Along with Amber, Olivia invites their friend, Justin, along for the trip, who frankly acts like one-of-the-girls. He even gets dressed up in colorful western wear. To my knowledge, unless I missed something, nothing is specifically mentioned regarding Justin’s behavior, but he's rather obvious.

After arriving at the ranch, the three friends: Olivia, Amber, and Justin, stay in the same one room lodge - in separate beds. I wasn’t too pleased with those arrangements, but, thankfully, nothing indecent is shown. Also, note: there is an outdoor shower at the ranch, and Olivia is barely shown as she’s beginning to take a shower in her bathing suit. This was actually more innocent than it sounds – she screams because the water is cold and Travis comes running. Who is Travis (?), you may ask…

Christopher Russell (A Lot Like Christmas, Chasing Waterfalls) is quite handsome as Travis McCleary, the rugged cowboy rancher. He fits the role perfectly, from the moment he rides up on his horse. It’s interesting to watch these city slickers try their best to fit in with Travis and his country life.

Overall, as far as this ranch movie goes… I’m on the skip it side of the fence due to the bedroom sharing (2 girls and a guy) and outlandish behavior. The three friends, Olivia, Amber and Justin, acted over-the-top and rather silly, at times, which I personally didn’t love. I did like Christopher Russell as the cowboy, actor Bruce Dawson (Nantucket Noel, Aurora Teagarden), as his father, and the country setting was gorgeous, along with the beautiful horses. Plus, the romance that develops between Olivia and Travis is rather sweet, but that wasn't enough to save it for me.

Anyway, that’s my take. Perhaps, Yellowstone Romance will rope you in, but this was not a keeper for me." ~Net


๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŽ "Net, thanks first for your great review of Yellowstone Romance. I watched but was well prepared thanks to you. The three friends, I agree, totally inappropriate the guy friend staying in the SAME room!!!!! Not needed. And the shower was ridiculous! You could see right through the boards. If they are literally supposed to be a ranch getaway then I don't think that would pass inspection.

Anyway, I liked Christopher Russell too, but the 3 friends were like immature teenagers the whole trip. Could've been great otherwise. Also, an okay one-time watch for me." ~Allie B


๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŽ "Yellowstone Romance...I turned it off because of the obvious "gay" man sharing a room with the girls. I really like Christopher Russell acting...so it wasn't easy turning it off, but I felt (for me) it was the right thing to do." ~Anonymous

The Nature of Romance

Original Air Date: May 15, 2022

Starring: Brant Daugherty, Kimberly Daugherty, Breanne Hill, Alexandra Harris




Story-line via UPtv: Travel writer Jackie Sinclair goes luxury “glamping” with her best friend Annette. When she arrives at the nature reserve, she bumps into devilishly handsome park ranger Sean, who offers to be Jackie’s guide in the hope she will write an article in one of her glossy magazines. It’s a bumpy ride at first, but as the pair embark on their adventure, sparks soon fly… could this be love?

Movie Review:

๐ŸŒณ "The Nature Of Romance is a solid and pleasant Rom.Com - nothing ground-breaking but definitely family friendly with a good performance from Brant Daugherty and I think most here should enjoy it" - Florence


๐ŸŒณ "The Nature Of Romance could not hold my interest. As much as I love watching Brant Daugherty, this movie had something missing. I was so disappointed." ~kitkat


๐ŸŒณ "The only other one I saw was The Nature of Romance. I lost interest in it partway through, but I did watch to the end." ~dstoutholcomb

Harmony in Paradise

Original Air Date: May 22, 2022

Starring: Liliana Tandon, Vivica A. Fox, Brian Krause, Thony Mena



Story-line via UPtv: Amelia, a respected wildlife journalist, is tasked with covering baby manatees in Puerto Rico about to be released into the wild, when she meets a handsome conservationist who helps her discover all the treasures the island has to offer.

Love Under the Lemon Tree

Original Air Date: May 29, 2022

Starring: Maddison Bullock, Anthony Coons, Casey O'Keefe


Story-line via UPtv: After being laid off from her job, budding photographer Beck realizes her dreams and enters a lucrative destination photography contest, heading off to the island of Serenity where her photography bug first. Staying at the Lemon Tree Farm, Beck is determined to help the handsome owner save his picturesque farm with the power of social media.

  1. This line-up is a bit worrying.

    I'm delighted to see 4 new Rom.Coms on UPtv but apart from The Nature Of Love they are new 2022 movies - this is unusual for UP.

    Yellowstone Romance has surprised me coming completely out of the blue but with Christopher Russell and Stephanie Bennett I'm looking forward to it.

    This means that there are a good number of 2021 movies still outstanding from Reel One Entertainment and I wonder if we will ever get to see them?

    The Nature Of Romance is a solid and pleasant Rom.Com - nothing ground-breaking but definitely family friendly with a good performance from Brant Daugherty and I think most here should enjoy it - Florence

    1. Chris, Yes! Carlos and Alexis PenaVega are married, and they have three children - two boys and a girl! They are such an adorable couple. Even though their mystery series is sadly over, I hope we will see more of them acting together in the future.

  8. Mark 25, I loved A Christmas Movie Christmas! You and Net were right! It was hilarious and a little silly, but so much fun to watch. My husband probably thought I had lost my mind. I laughed so hard at times; great big belly laughs. So happy I bought this DVD.

    1. kitkat, So glad you enjoyed A Christmas Movie Christmas! It's a bit silly and out-there, at times, but all in good clean fun! I'm soooo happy it made you laugh! :)

    2. Hey kitkat, I am so, so glad that you liked this movie! As I said in an earlier post, I don't think I laughed harder at any Christmas movie than this one! The whole cast seems perfect for their roles. It's nice to know that you and Net go for silliness too!

  9. Mark 25, one of the many things I loved about this movie was it appeared the actors were all having the time of their lives making this. We need more laughs in our lives these days. Brant Daugherty has the most pleasant look on his face; like he is ready to smile at any moment. When I need a pick me up moment in the future, I will watch this. Thanks to you and Net, I have a happy movie in my collection.

  10. Net, do you know if Mingle All the Way has been released on DVD? Checked on Amazon but do not see it.

    1. kitkat, I haven't seen an official DVD release, yet, for Mingle All the Way. I know a lot of people keep asking every year. That's another one on my personal wish list, too!

    2. Really surprising Halmark has never released Mingle All The Way on DVD.

      It was my #1 Christmas movie of 2018, amusing and touching, a delight from start to finish - Florence

    The Engagement Back Up - Elise Gatien, Preston Vanderslice

    Styled With Love - Rachel Bles, Dennis Andres

    Scented With Love - Rebecca Olson, Marshall Williams

  12. I now wonder if we will ever get to see Meet Me In New York.

    Apparently it was sold to a Dutch company and was aired in the Netherlands just a couple of weeks ago..

    This was one movie I was particularly looking forwars to - Florence

    1. Allie B, It's sooo good to get your take on this movie! I was afraid I was being a prude or something, but glad to know you felt the same.

      (Actually, being labeled a prude shouldn't be bad. It just means we have morals and standards we believe in.)

      Thank you for sharing! I posted your review above. ^

  14. Thank you Florence for the info on The Nature Of Love. So happy to know I can watch this. I am a Brant Daugherty fan.

  15. UPtv have added another movie to their May schedule for Sunday 22nd described as Romance and starring Liliana Tandon and Brian Krause both of whom I have never heard of before although Vivica A Fox is listed in the cast:

    Amelia, a respected wildlife journalist, is tasked with covering baby manatees in Puerto Rico about to be released into the wild, when she meets a handsome conservationist who helps her discover all the treasures the island has to offer.

    I'm hoping UP will continue with their Sunday Rom.Coms in July and August - last year there was only 1 in July and 2 in August

    1. Florence, Thank you for this movie tip. I recall when I first put this post together that I wondered if they might add in another movie on that date. I posted "Harmony in Paradise" above. By the way, I have never heard of it, either.

      As for the actors, you might recognize the female lead, Liliana Tandon, from UPtv's Christmas movie: A Ring for Christmas. I also interviewed her, which can be seen here.

      I'm still awaiting word on UP's July movies. I think we'll probably get word either late May or early June.
