Ryan Gosling and Al Roker Try Out Their 'Dirty Dancing' Moves (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Jul 20th 2011 12:45PM
Al Roker and Ryan Gosling showing off their 'Dirty Dancing' moves on 'Today'"The lift" is a move that took Johnny Castle and Baby a lot of practice to pull off in 'Dirty Dancing.' So imagine how successful Ryan Gosling and Al Roker were when they spontaneously decided to try it on national TV Wednesday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC).

It all started when Roker mentioned Ann Curry had been talking about Gosling's 'Dirty Dancing' moves in the new film 'Crazy, Stupid, Love.' This prompted Gosling to suggest he try them out with Roker, who then took a couple of running starts at Gosling, who unsuccessfully tried to lift him into the air.

There'll Be No 'Dirty Dancing' Lift for Jennifer Grey in the 'DWTS' Finale

Jennifer Grey and Derek HoughThe long wait to see who'll be crowned 'DWTS' is nearly at an end. But don't hold your breath waiting for finalist Jennifer Grey to recreate her famous 'Dirty Dancing' lift sequence.

The "air lift" move she performed with co-star Patrick Swayze has become one of the most iconic scenes in 'Dirty Dancing,' and fans have been on the edge of their seats hoping that Grey and partner Derek Hough would pull it out of the bag in the finals.

However, in an interview with People, Grey said "I won't be doing the lift in the finals ... Everyone should not expect that."

Even if she did consider it briefly, doctors told her that doing it could seriously injure her neck and back. Grey underwent the first of three neck surgeries only a year ago, and has been plagued by injuries all season.

The perfect Christmas movie marathon? Dirty Dancing

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 22nd 2009 11:29AM
dirty_dancing_lake_sceneOne of the stranger quirks of the holidays on television is the way networks and channels program. Movie marathons have become very common, especially TBS's tradition of 24-hours of A Christmas Story. Now, another network is following in TBS's tradition by scheduling a movie marathon of its own. The TV Guide Network will present a 12-hour marathon of Dirty Dancing. That's right, the Patrick Swayze-Jennifer Grey drama musical.

Look at this beautiful image from the movie. That's Johnny and Baby in the lake, practicing jumps for their big dance number. Doesn't it just scream "CHRISTMAS" to you?

cinematicalThe folks at our sister site Cinematical are working hard to give you news and reviews of the best -- and worst -- the silver screen has to offer. Here are some of their musings on the latest blockbusters, indies, and everything in between:
  • Do you think reality television is ruining documentaries? Join the discussion over at Cinematical.
  • Yesterday was Mother's Day, everybody! Did you do something nice for the special mama in your life? Did you make her coffee? Moms like it when people make them coffee, and breakfast, of course, but if you can't at least make them coffee, then what good are you? Anyway, in honor of this, the holiest of all holidays, Cinematical Seven takes a look at the Most Awesomest Movie Moms.
  • Apparently, some people boycott films because of political leanings and such. I am currently boycotting all of them (by which I mean that I have a baby and am never allowed to leave the house).
  • Did you know that both Ishtar and Dirty Dancing came out in the summer of '87? Take a trip down memory lane over at Cinematical.

How I Met Your Mother: First Time in New York

Neil Patrick Harris as Patrick Swayze(S02E12) Ah, the new year. I was waiting to hear the Bob Saget voiceover mention that this episode happened in "the winter of 2007," but they just decided to leave the date off. Oh, well.

This week, we get a two-fer of Robin fun: we get some exploration into the Robin-Ted relationship and we get to meet her little sister Katie (who I swear to God looks like a smaller version of Robin). Boy, Robin's parents were busy, weren't they? Robin and Katie must be at least ten years apart in age. Whether there were kids in between them or not, let's just say that the romance hasn't gone out of the elder Scherbatskys' marriage.

Jack Osbourne is dating Kate Moss?

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 20th 2006 10:53AM
I bet even Jack Osbourne never thought he'd get to date supermodel Kate Moss someday. But now he's hot and she's clean, so apparently they make a good match. The unlikely couple were reportedly doing some dirty dancing at a party after the Golden Globes awards in Los Angeles earlier this week. Tabloids have them on a bunch of other dates, too.

Kate Moss has just been through a heck of a time. She was caught by British tabloids doing cocaine, lost half her modeling contracts, dumped her druggie boyfriend, and ran off to rehab in the United States. Maybe that's where she and Jack have a connection. He also did a stint in rehab for a drug and alcohol addiction. Jack, by the way, is 20 years old. Kate is 32.
