Pleasure Dynasty owner Carlos Cavero says, "Our sincerest thanks to all the revered members of the XRCO. They have embraced our movie, singing its praises to consumers. They have also embraced our company, naming us a leading new producer of quality adult movies."
Mark Kernes, AVN Senior Editor and XRCO member since 1983, gave "Taxi Driver: A XXX Parody" a rare 5-star review, indicating a perfect score.
"It's been a long time since we've seen Martin Scorsese's award-winning film Taxi Driver, but in our view, the General Stone-directed parody deserves as much praise in the adult world as Scorsese's film got in mainstream," Kernes wrote. "Tommy Pistol's performance as Travis Bickle is riveting nearly every moment he's on screen…Think of De Niro's performance in the mainstream version crossed with the Rorschach character in Watchmen and you'll be close."
Demonstrating a commitment to release high-end adult parodies, Pleasure Dynasty recently released "Training Day XXX" and "The Real Housewives of South Beach XXX." Coming soon are "Zorro XXX" and "True Grit XXX."
