When we talk rom-coms, the same flicks are mentioned over and over and over again. We hear about 'Annie Hall' and 'When Harry Met Sally.' Fans gush over 'Sleepless in Seattle,' squeal about 'The Proposal' and replay 'Pretty Woman' until the disc bleeds. But there's a great world of romance lingering just under the surface of popularity, if you rip the Julia Robertses, Diane Keatons, Meg Ryans and Sandra Bullocks away.
Have you ever watched Rosanna Arquette swoon for a young Eric Roberts? A clean Charlie Sheen fall for the youthful wiles of Kerri Green? Diane Lane fall for a smart French boy? Reese Witherspoon and Paul Rudd take a road trip together? Philip Seymour Hoffman toy with Hope Davis' feelings?
