Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Chad L. Coleman’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 Chad L. Coleman 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 Chad L. Coleman 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 Chad L. Coleman’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, Chad L. Coleman 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 kid convinces Warren this stay-over was part of what he signed up for and Warren gets stuck taking the kid on a road trip. Imagine the possibilities for external conflict. Warrens entire character arc would become externalized.
The inner-city kid has been taking care of himself since he was 5. He knows the ropes and becomes a mentor to help Warren change. A change thats now external and visual = no more voice over.
Chad L. Coleman – Warren retires. He signs up to sponsor an inner-city child while watching a TV commercial. Soon after his wife dies, the inner-city kid runs away from his home and shows up at Warrens house.
How would you visualize this? Warren could reluctantly agree to sponsor an inner-city kid one day a week then get stuck with the kid on a road trip. Lets take a look at how this would work:
There are separate chapters coming up for Act Two, Part 1; Act Two, Part 2; and Act Three that detail the different elements of each act, but I thought it would be useful for you all to have just a basic list that you can use when youre watching a film or doing the index cards for your own story, so Ive given it its own chapter: Chapter 17, Story Elements Checklist.
Chad L. Coleman – Im sure you realize this, but Im going to say it anyway. The reason that Im having you break down movies of your choice for the story elements is to make it easier for you to identify these same story elements in your own story the ones you already have and the ones you may be missing.
· ASSIGNMENT: In this workbook, Ive included full story breakdowns and analyses of ten films in different genres. If you really want to see how the Elements of Act One actually function, get ahold of at least three of those movies, and watch the first act of one of the films, looking for the elements Ive discussed here, then read the Act One breakdown for that film, and watch the first act again. Do that with all three movies, and you will be super-prepared to start analyzing the films on your own list.
Also, this might just be a good time to stop, take a breath, and watch some movies, to see all of these techniques were talking about in action. Again, only use any of these techniques that appeal to you or that you think will help!
