You know that feeling when you get home from work on a Thursday night and are like, What should I do? Stay in with my significant other, a.k.a. this bottle of wine, or go out to a movie with friends? The answer is go out to a movie with friends?while drinking that wine in the theater. And, if you want to laugh/cry/swoon, see a romantic comedy. Here are the best, funniest, loviest romcoms coming out in 2018.
1 The Competition
Thora Birch stars as Lauren Mauldin, a woman who believes in ending relationships after six months to avoid having her heart broken by infidelity. Enter Chris Klein as Calvin Chesney, who sets out to prove her wrong by inviting her to tempt his happily coupled friends into cheating. It's like if How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days involved messing with other people's lives.
2 Basmati Blues
Brie Larson plays a scientist who is sent to India to sell her genetically modified rice to rural farmers. Along the way, she finds love and music—because this is amusical rom-com. That said, shouldn't the "white girl visits other culture and appropriates it while falling in love" genre have died out by now?
A couple on the verge of marriage decide to sleep with other people before getting engaged. What could possibly go wrong?
4 Half Magic
Three women unhappy with their romantic lives decide to take control and find love on their own terms. Bonus: Graham also wrote and directed the film.
5 Love, Simon
Simon is a closeted gay teen, looking to come out on his own terms. When secret emails to his romantic pen pal fall into the wrong hands, however, he ends up blackmailed. It's from the people who brought us The Fault in Our Stars, so expect some drama with the comedy.
