Best Comedy Movies of 2018 (and the Worst), Ranked By Tomatometer

Need a laugh? Then you were wise to visit Rotten Tomatoes, because we’re presenting our guide to the best comedies of 2018, ranked by Tomatometer! (We’re also including the worst comedies of 2018, so you know what to avoid, or if you’re in for a chuckle of a different variety.) We’ve included only movies that have at least 20 reviews, and that have comedy as their primary genre. That includes certain superhero fare (thanks for the levity Deadpool and Ant-Man!), though we avoided animation and most family movies (sorry, Paddington 2, this is one list you wont dominate). But if you were a comedy-drama, you pretty much made the list, even if the drama managed to take over in the end; you’ll see the likes of Eighth Grade and Blindspotting at the top. But don’t worry, there was plenty of space for everything in-between: the frat comedy (Super Troopers 2), rom-coms (Overboard), star vehicles (I Feel Pretty), and even a touch of the political (Death of Stalin).

So continue on to the best (and worst) comedy movies of 2018 by Tomatometer, and check back as we update through the rest of the year!
