17 October 2014 4:20 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

From Michael Jackson to Patrick Swayze to … Alfonso Ribeiro? Eight-year-old Charlie has already impressively tackled some of the most iconic dance numbers of all time, but he has always been a solo act - until now. That all changed Thursday when Charlie met Dancing with the Stars contestant Ribeiro and his pro-dancer partner Witney Carson backstage at a taping of The Queen Latifah Show. "Charlie was so excited to meet them," an onlooker tells People. "His mom had shown him The Carlton dance before so he was beside himself when he saw [Alfonso] in real life." Charlie may have been a »

The 50 Funniest Women of the Past 50 years: #10-1

17 October 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Make people laugh and they won't even realize you're making them think. Over the past 50 years, women have broken through the glass ceiling time after time, shattering stereotypes and thumbing their noses at the old chestnut that "Women aren't funny." Fact: Anybody who says women aren't funny doesn't want them to be funny. We're looking back on the 50 funniest women of the past 50 years, their contributions to comedy, and their enduring legacies that inspire men and women alike. These are the 50 women who have helped (and are helping) to introduce the next class of hilarious women, which will inevitably include Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling, Tig Notaro, Chelsea Handler, Maria Bamford, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate McKinnon. Keep in mind this list only includes women who are primarily performers in movies, television, and standup comedy. That's why you don't see legends like Nora Ephron, Anne Beatts, and Elaine May here. »

There are some things you can just watch over and over again, like every sexy dance sequence in Dirty Dancing... or this adorable eight-year-old's re-creation of the film's memorable finale.

8-Year-Old Boy Channels Patrick Swayze to Perform Nearly Perfect Dirty Dancing Finale

14 October 2014 11:20 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Nobody puts baby in the corner! Charlie, 8, proved this point by recreating a spot-on performance of Dirty Dancing's final number (lift not included), the Today show reports. Mimicking the moves of Patrick Swayze's Johnny Castle, Charlie easily delivers every one of the character's signature hip swivels and box steps as he watches along with the movie. The only thing missing from Charlie's amazing Johnny impersonation is a dance partner, which the boy should have no trouble finding now. Charlie's mesmerizing routine went viral after his family posted the video to Facebook. This isn't Charlie's first time taking center stage. »

Ray Winstone’s BAFTA Talk On Tough Guys, ‘Noah’ & Working With Scorsese

5 October 2014 2:07 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

BAFTA’s latest Life In Pictures conversation featured British screen icon Ray Winstone, who proved a big draw despite the unseasonably warm October afternoon. With no new title to stump for (although he did mention his upcoming childhood-focused autobiography Young Winstone), the veteran instead entertained the crowd with a freewheeling look at his four-decade-long career, which includes prominent roles in films such as Noah, The Departed, and Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull.

While he had plenty of quips about his adventures in Hollywood – including an uncanny Martin Scorsese impression – Winstone spoke passionately about his work in British cinema.

Famous for playing East End tough guys – “My wife asked me why I always walk in a room looking like I’m going to kill someone” – Winstone waxed lyrical about Gary Oldman’s work directing him in the gritty 1997 drama Nil By Mouth.

That film unflinchingly looks at »

Caroline Flack: 'Strictly Come Dancing is basically Dirty Dancing'

30 September 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | Virgin Media - TV | See recent Virgin Media - TV news »

Caroline Flack compared 'Strictly Come Dancing' to 1987 film 'Dirty Dancing'. The TV presenter is a contestant on the 12th series of the celebrity ballroom competition, and she admitted it sometimes feels like she's part of the iconic movie. She told the London Evening Standard newspaper: '''Strictly' is basically 'Dirty Dancing'. ''That's the only way I can explain it. And [Pasha Kovalev] is Patrick Swayze - look at him! ''He's like 'step on the two,' and I'm 'eeek! It's Dirty Dancing! Eeek!' '' However, when the stress - of her both her professional and personal lives - get too much, it's not the 1980s classic »

'Dancing With The Stars' Recap: Janel Parrish & Bethany Mota Earn Perfect 10s; Randy Couture Eliminated

29 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Dancing with the Stars returned Monday with Movie Night, in which actor Kevin Hart took over Len Goodman’s seat on the judges’ panel. Not only were the celebrities dancing movie-themed dances, but they were on high alert about whether or not they would be the second one going home from last Monday's routines.

Dancing with the Stars Recap

After finding out that they were one of the pairs in jeopardy, Randy Couture and Karina Smirnoff took on the season’s first Paso Doble. Going with a Rocky theme, Karina choreographed an intense routine. Unfortunately, Randy’s biggest cheers came when he merely struck a pose – not when he was clumsily attempting to execute the dance moves. Julianne Hough and Bruno Tonioli found little to like about the performance. Scores: 7+7+6+6=26

Alfonso Riberio, eager to prove he can master ballroom dancing, did a quickstep, which was oddly given an Austin Powers theme. »

Gerard Butler Gets a Handful of His Mystery Brunette on the Beach

26 September 2014 10:46 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Gerard Butler packed on the Pda with a new lady friend during a day at the beach in Malibu, CA, on Thursday. The hunky Scottish actor went shirtless to do some stand-up paddleboarding, and he and his bikini-clad brunette girlfriend couldn't help getting frisky while wading in the water. Gerard is obviously still comfortable in the ocean, despite dropping out of the Point Break remake earlier this year. He was reportedly in talks to portray Bodhi - who was originally played by Patrick Swayze in the '90s action flick - but ran into scheduling conflicts, as he is slated to begin filming London Has Fallen, the sequel to Olympus Has Fallen, in the Fall. For now, though, keep reading to see Gerard and his lady getting hot and heavy in the ocean, then check out even more steamy celebrity beach Pda. »

30. Conspirators of Pleasure (1996)

Directed by: Jan Švankmajer

We’ve already seen two films from Jan Švankmajeron the list, but this elaborate movie about a number of separate, but connected people takes the cake. Conspirators of Pleasure follows six people, each with their own incredibly unsettling fetish. A letter carrier ingests dough balls every night before bed. A clerk is obsessed with a new anchor and creates a machine that pleasure him while he watches her. That anchorwoman has an odd obsession with live carp. One customer of the clerk’s practice paper mâché voodoo with a chicken costume and a doll resembling his neighbor. The neighbor has a doll of him that she brutalizes. Finally, the anchormwoman’s husband rubs homemade contraptions to rub all over his body. Conspirators could simply be a character study that, while still strange, would not be nearly as creepy. Švankmajer’s known for his animation and puppetry, »

Why 'Point Break' Just May Be 1991's Perfect Movie

2 September 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In a crazy turn of events, Keanu Reeves is 50 years old. To honor the actor's five-decades-old milestone, we're celebrating one of his best movies, "Point Break," and explain why it fits its year of release, 1991, so perfectly.

Prior to the early '90s classic, Reeves hadn't really ventured into action movies and was best known for playing a pretty boy, high school stoner in "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" (1989). "Point Break" would change all that. Directed by Kathryn Bigelow ("The Hurt Locker"), the movie paired Reeves with an established star and co-heartthrob, Patrick Swayze, fresh off hits like "Road House" (1989) and "Ghost" (1990). Together, they would create a surfing bromance too good to be true.

Set against the backdrop of the coastal Los Angeles area, "Point Break" captured the surfing culture of the region, while simultaneously depicting the criminal underbelly of the city. Los Angeles had long been the bank robbery capital of the world, »
