I don't know if there's 10 comedy movies from 2018 that I would even rate as good, let alone enough that a 10 best list would have any meaning. To come up with a list of 10, the latter half would be filled with mediocre crap.

The 2 movies of 2018 that I laughed at the most were Deadpool 2 and Incredibles 2

Not exactly considered pure comedies, but they were the funniest movies I saw.

Have we had ten good comedies this century?

Most of my favorite funny films lately are mixed genre ones like Deadpool or Sorry to Bother You.

Of the comedy only genre films I saw last year, I guess Tag gets the top spot by default, but it’s mediocre at best.

Game Night is the only comedy that I enjoyed this year.

I suppose Tag was alright but nothing special. I do like seeing Jon Hamm playing it goofy.

I just spent a few minutes looking over 2018 Comedies. There was a lot of shit put out this year! A few independent comedies that I haven’t seen (though I’m sure they all think they’re a lot funnier than they are), and a bunch of decent movies with comedic elements rolled in that I don’t consider “comedies ”.

I would add Game Night and The Death of Stalin.

Clicked on this thread hoping for some great recommendations.

Funniest movie (trailer) I saw was for "Santa Fight: Saving the Holiday from Atnas"

For some reason, there has been a shortage of great comedies the last few years.
And I have no idea why...
It's too bad...I look forward to good comedy flicks.

How often have we heard it said about a classic comedy, e.g. BLAZING SADDLES, that "it couldn't be made today"? Well, it can't and no one today would even try, given the current climate of scrutinizing everything for "offensiveness."

And, speaking of Mel Brooks' parodies, those comedies only worked because the mass audience back then consisted of people who were familiar with the genres being parodied, e.g. westerns, classic b&w horror, Hitchcock, etc. Parodies like that today have to mine niche genres that don't have the wide audience that Brooks could cater to. I'm sure if I saw something like the SCARY MOVIE franchise, I'd have difficulty knowing what the references are, because I don't watch the genre being parodied. So films like that are made on a much smaller scale than Brooks' comedies, if they're even being made anymore.

Re: Best 10 comedy movies in 2018?

I could've answered this if you'd asked about the last 15 years (or so), but the so-called "comedies" they've been churning out recently are more stupid than funny. These days, I wouldn't give you a plug nickel for anything they tag as comedy. They mostly end up sitting in the bargain bin, untouched, within months of release on home video.

Game Night and Blockers are the only two comedies worth mentioning.
Tag was okay, but forgettable.

I liked Game Night and Sorry to Bother You.

And Incredibles 2, Ant-Man and Wasp, Wreck-it Ralph 2, Spider-verse, and Deadpool 2 if they count. I don't think there were 10 traditional comedies released this year: Tag, Blockers, Game Night, Long Dumb Road, Johnny English

I saw Game Night and Cock Blockers, both of those were very funny. I also liked The Spy Who Dumped Me. I agree about Tag just being okay, same with Night School.

I started watching Sorry To Bother You on Hulu. It was not doing anything for me. I might be too old and white.

Was I the only person in the world to see Action Point with Johnny Knoxville?

Just occurred to me that Spider-Verse was pretty funny, but I would not call that a comedy.

I saw that too. It was okay, nothing great. Happytime Murders was also pretty bad along with Super Troopers 2.

Air Strike was also hilarious, but for all the wrong reasons.

Smallfoot was a delightful animated movie that was pretty funny. Early Man was good too.

Re: Best 10 comedy movies in 2018?

Almost all the straight comedy films of 2018 were mediocre or garbage.

There were some movies of mixed-genre's that were pretty funny though.

Deadpool 2 probably being the highlight imo.

Blockers was a pretty okay comedy though.

Incredibles and Smallfoot were some animated movies that were funny at times too.

Game Night, Night School, Action Point, The Spy Who Dumped Me, and Tag were just.... eh..

I thought Game Night was one of the best comedies in the last few years. Enjoyed Tag quite a bit too.
