Best comedy of 2018: 'BlacKkKlansman' or 'Crazy Rich Asians'?

"BlacKkKlansman" and "Crazy Rich Asians" proved that films led by actors of color can turn into box office gold. While both films hold cultural significance, and didn't refrain from engaging in serious dialogues about race, that didn't stop us from laughing out loud. "Crazy Rich Asians" was the first English-language movie in 25 years to feature a predominantly Asian cast. "BlacKkKlansman" is a remarkable real-life story about an undercover black cop, but it still brought the funny. Which film was the best comedy of 2018?

Below is the synopsis of "BlacKkKlansman," per Rotten Tomatoes.

From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It's the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream. Produced by the team behind the Academy-Award (R) winning Get Out.

"BlacKkKlansman" is an amazing true story about a black cop who infiltrates the Ku Klux Klan, and mines both our current and past cultural history to produce a compelling, powerful narrative. Only filmmaker Spike Lee could juggle a movie so serious, and so unbelievably amazing, and still manage to make it funny. 

"BlacKkKlansman" holds a fresh rating of 95 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, grossing over $87 million at the global box office. That's not too bad for a biopic on a smaller budget.

Below is the synopsis of "Crazy Rich Asians," per Rotten Tomatoes

"Crazy Rich Asians" follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu (Wu) as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young (Golding), to his best friend's wedding in Singapore. Excited about visiting Asia for the first time but nervous about meeting Nick's family, Rachel is unprepared to learn that Nick has neglected to mention a few key details about his life. It turns out that he is not only the scion of one of the country's wealthiest families but also one of its most sought-after bachelors. Being on Nick's arm puts a target on Rachel's back, with jealous socialites and, worse, Nick's own disapproving mother (Yeoh) taking aim. And it soon becomes clear that while money can't buy love, it can definitely complicate things.

The romantic comedy-drama holds a fresh rating of 92 percent on Rotten Tomatoes and made over $238 million at the global box office. "Crazy Rich Asians" is based on the novel of the same and the rom-com was clearly fresh adaptation moviegoers have been missing. "Crazy Rich Asians" was also the first English-language movie since the "The Joy Luck Club" to feature a predominantly Asian cast
