Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Catherine Reitman’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 Catherine Reitman 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 Catherine Reitman 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 Catherine Reitman’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, Catherine Reitman 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.

First off, the voice over (V.O.) – all of it – would need to be eliminated. The screenwriter would have to find visual ways to present what’s spoken in the voice overs.

If About Schmidt were written as a spec script geared towards a first-sale what would be different about it? Almost everything.

Catherine Reitman – Be aware that adding a better balance could greatly shift the dynamics of the character-driven story and make it completely different from what you started out with. In other words, you could potentially be looking at a page-one rewrite.

2) Add more plot/external stuff and create a better balance between plot/character, which increases the potential for a spec sale from an aspiring screenwriter.

But let’s cover the basics right now. There are multiple definitions of a setpiece (or set piece — both versions of the term are used). It can be a huge action scene like, well, anything in The Dark Knight or Inception, that takes weeks to shoot and costs millions, requiring multiple sets, special effects, and car crashes … or a meticulously planned suspense scene with multiple cuts that takes place all in — a shower, for instance, in Psycho.

Catherine Reitman – The climax of an act is very, very often a SETPIECE SCENE: there’s a dazzling, thematic location, an action or suspense sequence, an intricate set, a crowd scene, even a musical number (as in The Wizard of Oz and, more surprisingly, Jaws.). This is an important concept for you to understand, and I’ve included a full discussion on setpieces in Chapter 23.


Plan, Central Question, and Central Story action are usually set up in the first act, but they are the crux of the second act, and maybe the most important key elements to understand about your story, so I’m going to give them a couple of chapters of their own.
