The Best Movies Of 2018 (So Far)

Laughter: not actually the best medicine for serious ailments, but still pretty great! (We suggest a doctor for those serious ailments.)

Somehow forecasting just how gloomy and caustic 2018 would turn out to be, the movie industry stepped up its game over the last 10 months and delivered genuinely funny comedies —versus, say, American Pie 8: Butts in Cake or whatever — that kept slapstick and satire and joyous stupidity soldiering on. These movies won’t probably win Oscars, but they will win you over when you watch them over and over on HBO. Simply put: they’re funny.

Our rolling list of the best comedies of the year ranges from laugh-out-loud to devilishly sharp to cheeky in that British way. And before you laugh us off: yes, we’ll update again before the end of the year with a few more picks, just in case any more films squeeze a chortle out of us before year’s end. If you’re looking for more recommendations, check out our more general list of the best movies of 2018.
