Ryan Gosling has a hard time getting dates. Or at least that’s what movie makers would like us to believe of his characters. For instance, in the seminal Nicholas Sparks flick, “The Notebook,” Ryan’s Noah Calhoun dangles precariously from a Ferris wheel, risking life and limb, simply to convince Rachel McAdams’ Allie Hamilton to accept a date. (We’d never make you go to those lengths, Ryan!) While there are no zipping carnival rides to be found in this exclusive clip from Ryan’s upcoming film “Blue Valentine,” it does look as though he’ll once again have to turn on the Gosling charm to win the girl.
Out December 26, “Blue Valentine” follows married couple Dean (Ryan) and Candy (Michelle Williams) as they attempt to save their marriage by vacationing at a themed hotel. While there, they relive their entire love story. This clip shows where it all began: their first meeting. I don’t want to say too much to spoil the scene, so I’ll just add that it includes my new favorite pick-up line courtesy of Dean: “I make money—money I can take girls out on dates with. Just so you know.” Oh, Ryan, you get us every time!
