Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Adam Levine’s “Dumbass”
Will Hollywood be a Reason for Change in the Injustice against Men and Women Prisoners?
19th March 2021 – An upcoming movie depicting the injustice that men and women had to endure in the state penitentiaries in Texas has been inundated with calls from more than 2000 women urging the production company owned by Hollywood actor, producer and director Adam Levine and Adam Sandler, to stick to the real issues behind the Texas Judicial system. A petition was signed by many people that include attorneys, university professors, politicians and family members of the many men and women that are suffering in the state penitentiaries. The idea behind the petition is for the Adam Levine production company and Hollywood to stick to the true story about the injustices happening in the state run prisons. It is said that the state has sent more inmates to prison than during the Soviet Union did during their political uprising.
PREMISE: Adam Sandler writes letters and saves numerous women from the monotony of prison life, and later when he gets into trouble with a drug cartel they return the favor by rescuing him.
SETTING: Contemporary, Gatesville Texas. There are four women’s prisons located in Gatesville. And of course, Texas is famous for putting everyone in prison for a long time for little or no reason. The number of women in Texas prisons has doubled in the last ten years. Why don’t we have the “Adam Sandler” character… sending letters to women in prison and being their friend and trying to help them adjust, giving them hope… and when they get out of prison he picks them up so they don’t have to ride the smelly bus back home… but his pickup truck is a junker, smoking and sputtering … worse than the bus. But his heart is in the right place… He’s the last “chivalrous” man on earth.
It is said in the petition that many of the signatories were left distraught to find that many of the first time offenders for violations such as drug peddling have received disproportionate sentences. While some argue that a lenient sentence like rehabilitation would have proven much more inexpensive and an effective solution in tackling this gross miscarriage of justice. The petition was discovered by the women when the screenplay of the movie was donated to all the 580 prisons run by private organizations funded by the state government. It is much more difficult for women who are given much harsher penalties for a violation such as carrying small amount of drugs like Marijuana which coincidentally is legal in 21 states.
About Adam Levine’s “Dumbass” Movie
The movie “Dumbass” revolves around the protagonist writing letters to prison inmates to keep their spirits high during their time in prison; only for them to help the main character who gets into trouble with a drug cartel and saving him at the end. The petition urges the production company, Adam Levine and Adam Sandler to take this issue seriously due to the hardships faced by women inside prison rather than making light of the situation for their own profits.

The biggest mistake Id made was assuming the contest placement put my script in the running for the big screen. What it did was the following: 1) helped me gain industry attention 2) gave my writing skills credibility. But both the producers were right; the script wasnt commercial.
He read the script and passed. He said it was a good script and well written, but it failed as a commercial product and I should try an independent producer. After I got over the initial shock I realized this was the second time a Hollywood producer had told me my script wasnt commercial.
Adam Levine – One day a producer came into the press room and asked if anyone would like to earn extra money doing script coverage for him. I jumped on the Hollywood readers bandwagon and have been there ever since. This producer, at the time, did family films for Disney. He was a perfect match for my script The Yellow Tulip. Im a lousy salesman, but eventually I mustered the courage to tell him about my script and its contest placement.
My next mistake was in believing she was 100% wrong. This script made finalist out of 1,500 scripts! After this, I moved forward in life and went to work at Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California. I worked in Corporate Communications, otherwise known as the press room.
When the work is play, youve got the best of all possible worlds.
Adam Levine – Even beyond that, studying movies is fun, and fun is something writers just dont let themselves have enough of. If you train yourself to watch for some of these structural elements, then every time you go to the movies or watch something on television, youre actually honing your craft (even on a date or while spending quality time with your loved ones!), and after a while you wont even notice youre doing it.
So that means authors can give themselves an edge by stealing I mean using some of these film techniques to make their stories more immediately appealing and easily marketable and by the way, to create better, more engaging books. I believe any novelist, from aspiring to multiply published; traditional, indie, or hybrid; and aspiring screenwriters as well, can benefit from these screenwriting tricks of the trade.
And realistically, film has had an enormous influence on contemporary novels, and on publishing. Editors love books with the high concept premises, pacing, and visual and emotional impact of movies, so being aware of classic and blockbuster films and the film techniques that got them that status can help you write novels that will actually sell in todays market. If youre indie publishing, its even more important to use every trick in the structural book to make sure that your novel stands out from the crowd.
