haha but seriously – recently a quote from yours truly was featured in a press release regarding AMK’s super cute ’80s teen sex comedy Revenge of the Petites (2012).Â The headline read:Â â€œ’Revenge of the Petites’ College ComedyÂ Receives Straight Aâ€™s from Critics.”
And though I will never understand the occasionally engaged, highly rule-breaking “convention” of putting movie titles in quotes, I was happy that my assessment of the film was included amongst the likes of XCritic‘sÂ Don Houston and Fleshbot‘sÂ Gram Ponante.Â Yay!!
Anyway, (most of) the press release is copied below, and you can read my review of Revenge of the PetitesÂ in its entirety here (and you can read about my adventures at the film’s premier here) – enjoy!!

â€œRevenge of the Petitesâ€ College ComedyÂ Receives Straight Aâ€™s from Critics
Widespread Media Acclaim & Reviews Boost SalesÂ of Revolutionary Adult Comedy FeatureÂ fromÂ AMKingdom.com!
June 5, 2012 — TARZANA, CA —Â AMKingdom.comÂ is racking up rave reviews from critics and fans with its mega-hit feature, â€œRevenge of the Petites.â€ Available exclusively through Exile Distribution, the 3-disc set contains nearly 8 hours of content, including the original feature movie, extended sex scenes, interviews, and a behind-the-scenes documentary.Â Â Retailers and distributors should stock up and cash in on this one-of-a-kind release, as the reviews show â€œRevenge of the Petitesâ€ stacks up as the most highly acclaimed adult film of the year.
â€œRevenge of the Petitesâ€ is an original feature capturing the essence of the 80â€™s hysterical coming-of-age comedies.Â Â It is the first feature to successfully merge niche markets like petites, hairy, and exotic with traditional adult elements. Tying all the niches together is an original, feel-good story with heart, as well a huge budget, 23 adult stars, 30 extras, and original music.Â CraveOnline.com, British GQ, AVN, XBIZ, and other high-profile media outlets raved about the filmâ€™s red-carpet theatrical premiere in Los Angeles last month; the DVD release has continued to generate outstanding press.
Named an XBIZ Editorâ€™s Choice, Managing Editor Dan Miller hails the movie asÂ â€œa funny and thoughtful homage to American coming-of-age comedies such as â€˜Revenge of the Nerds,â€™ â€˜Fast Times at Ridgemont High,â€™ â€˜American Pie,â€™ and even â€˜The Graduateâ€™…Â more than just a sex movie. The film looks great and captures a nice nostalgic vibe that should have viewers digging through their old VHS tapes for a John Hughes fix.â€
AVNâ€™s Peter Warren calls â€œRevenge of the Petitesâ€ â€œoneÂ of the absolute must-see adult motion pictures of 2012,â€Â and â€œa lot of infectious fun…likely to pull in many a customer.â€
â€œAll of your high school fantasies have come true (or at least all the movie-related ones have) withÂ ATKingdom.comâ€™s release of â€œRevenge of the Petitesâ€,â€ says Devon Ashby of popular mainstream entertainment siteÂ CraveOnline.com. â€œWith its cuddly nostalgia quotient, story, characters, and cinematography, â€˜Revenge of the Petitesâ€™Â simultaneously recalls a more glorious phase in the history of the adult industry, and glorifies the adolescent, boob-obsessed silliness that makes porn so appealing to begin with.â€
â€œA top-notch production from AMK Empire and director Harry Sparks,â€ says consumer fu_q on Adult DVD Talk. â€œIn all honesty, everything is done perfectly here, and this is really how porn should be made, Thereâ€™s plenty of tease, hot sex, and a fun 80s-themed plot in this one which is much more original than it is parody. This oneâ€™s a definite winner.â€
Gram Ponante ofÂ Fleshbot.comÂ writes, â€œâ€™Revenge of the Petitesâ€™ really does evoke innocent fun movies like â€˜Revenge of the Nerdsâ€™ and â€˜Weird Science.â€™ Not only does it appeal to the demographic that would remember the reference material, but also their elders…. it is also sweet, and you just want to do horrible/wonderful things to Marie McCray all the way through it.â€
â€œAll I can say is â€œWow!â€ raves Rosco Fuji forÂ AdultDVDTalk.com. â€œWith over 8 hours of material packed into the 3 disks, you know this collection should do quite well come awards time in January. Very high quality, excellent production values.Â Get 2 copies of this, one for yourself and one as a present.”
Don Houston ofÂ XCritic.comÂ calls â€œRevenge of the Petitesâ€ â€œa great alternative to the plethora of parodies or cheapo knockoffs populating the shelves of retailers…a proverbial breath of fresh air… a movie that will undoubtedly earn a number of awards in the future…Highly Recommended!â€
And Dr. Chauntelle Tibbals, Ph.D., a visiting scholar at the University of Southern California, sums up â€œRevenge of the Petitesâ€ as â€œone of the most refreshing films Iâ€™ve seen in a long time… All the components of this film are woven together in a way that is both refreshingÂ andÂ a nice nod to days of porn-making long past.â€
â€œHow porn should be made,â€ addsÂ AdultDVDTalk.comÂ blogger Marv Montag.Â Â â€œJust about everything has been done right in this releaseâ€¦ All in all, â€˜Revenge of the Petitiesâ€™ is pretty much everything that a porno should be. Â There’s awesome acting, a real plot, sex scenes that don’t drag out the rest of the production, a second disc with full versions of the sex scenes, and a third that’s loaded with extra material (i.e. â€˜Making ofâ€™ and â€˜Interviewsâ€™). Â Further, the production values are top-notch, as is the packaging. Â This one is definitely worth checking out.â€
