Prestigious Trophy Will Boost Sales of Chart-Topping Consumer Favorite!
April 16, 2012 --- MIAMI, FL --- Pleasure Dynasty’s “Taxi Driver: A XXX Parody” was named Best Parody (Drama) at the 2012 XRCO Awards. Leading man Tommy Pistol, himself nominated for the XRCO’s Best Actor award for his work on the film, accepted the trophy on behalf of Pleasure Dynasty’s Carlos Cavero. The award is the latest of many honors bestowed on the acclaimed production, and another reason for retailers to stock up on the title in anticipation of a sales boost.

“We are honored and grateful to receive the XRCO’s Best Parody –Drama award for ‘Taxi Driver XXX’,” says Pleasure Dynasty owner Carlos Cavero. “It is a terrific affirmation of our company’s mission to create the highest quality adult entertainment. I would like to thank the esteemed members of the XRCO for recognizing the movie, and our very talented cast and crew for making ‘Taxi Driver XXX’ such a phenomenal success.”
The X-Rated Critics Organization (http://www.xrco.com/) is a professional critics’ circle devoted to the recognition of outstanding quality in adult moviemaking. The XRCO Awards are a long-running and well-respected tradition in the industry, with this year marking the 28th annual ceremony.
“On behalf of Pleasure Dynasty, Sensuous Diamond and Exile Distribution, we thank XRCO,” says Howard Levine of Exile Distribution, which handles sales of Pleasure Dynasty’s movies. “This movie is more than a parody; it’s a labor of love with incredible attention to detail. Director Rob Black [aka General Stone] and Tom Byron deserve all the credit for this production. Without them it could never have been made as well as it was. They did an awesome job. Tommy Pistol, Jesse Andrews, Lily LaBeau and the rest of the cast were beyond great. Thank you to XRCO for recognizing high quality and for this award.”
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.”
