Though the vast majority of people have long been accustomed to dismissing direct-to-video productions as unoriginal and downright bad movies, the reality is that these smaller-scale films can actually pack quite a punch!

The same could not be more true for B-movie comedies, where unorthodox scripts, odd casting choices, and a wacky atmosphere reign supreme!

Here are 10 of the funniest direct-to-video comedies ever made:

It's no secret that the days of comedies dominating the box office are long gone - Hollywood has basically stopped making big comedies, preferring to add humor to blockbuster action movies instead.

Yes, comedies are still being produced for streaming services like Netflix, but they all seem generic and uninspired.

You can't say the same about direct-to-video comedies, because their directors aren't bound by studio morals and can do whatever they want to offend viewers with dark humor and explicit content.

And that's why we love small comedies - they feel original and daring, even if they were made in the '80s, as some of the movies on this list were.

If you've never tried watching low-budget comedies that bypass the theaters altogether, now's the time to give it a try!

Hollywood comedies are dead, long live direct-to-video movies!

Here are all the films mentioned: Dennis the Menace Strikes Again (1998), Bachelor Party Vegas (2006), Traxx (1988), House Party: Tonight’s the Night (2013), Bad Girls from Valley High (2005), Class Of Nuke ‘Em High (1986), Daphne & Velma (2018), Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie (2004), Ernest in the Army (1998), The 41-Year-Old Virgin Who Knocked Up Sarah Marshall and Felt Superbad About It (2010).
