Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Brian Baumgartner’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 Brian Baumgartner 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 Brian Baumgartner 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 Brian Baumgartner’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, Brian Baumgartner 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.

Possible tagline for the lake monster story:
If youre still having difficulty with the logline, then start with taglines. Using key phrases that pertain to the story can help the writer come up with a good logline.
Brian Baumgartner – Do a test: Pitch your logline to someone who doesnt know anything about your story and has never read the script. DO NOT tell them anything but the logline. Ask if they can guess the genre. If 9 out 10 cant guess it, go back and revise the logline.
Listen to your own voice. Find your own method. Take what you want of these tricks and never mind the rest.
Brian Baumgartner – Thats really the main thing Im trying to show you, here, and then Im throwing in a lot of general structure information and technique that Ive learned from theater and film and novel writing. Because for me, it all helps.
The bottom line of all this method is just one thing: Teach yourself how to write the kinds of stories that you love, that work for you, by analyzing the books and films that turn you on, and figuring out what those storytellers are doing to create the effects they do.
Yes, of course you can. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is almost always a problem for creative people. You have to be fairly obsessed to succeed at anything, and obsession feeds on itself. Theres a point at which obsessive outlining, or obsessive anything, can become counterproductive. You have to know that tendency in yourself, and stop yourself when you feel yourself becoming hung up.
