The best romantic comedies deliver an irresistible double sucker punch of meet-cute moments (only Julia Roberts could make prostitution adorable) and aw-shucks sentiment (who doesn't cry at the end of 'Four Weddings and a Funeral'?).

Even better, they're perfect date-night material. We count down the 25 best rom-coms ever -- and believe it or not, Roberts, Renee Zellweger and Meg Ryan don't star in all of them.
