Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Chris Pratt’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 Chris Pratt 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 Chris Pratt 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 Chris Pratt’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, Chris Pratt 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.

Is there an internal conflict for the protagonist (Jack) and does this external conflict force him to come to terms with his internal conflict?
External Conflict = A mad bombers loose in L.A.
Chris Pratt – Speed
Ive picked a film that outwardly appears to be a plot-driven story, yet it has a definite character arc. I chose the film Speed because its an extremely straightforward example.
And again, Lecter is the one who draws this deep need out of Clarice.
Chris Pratt – But what Clarice really needs is not advancement. What she needs is to save a lamb the lamb that haunts her dreams, the lamb she still hears screaming. In the story, the kidnapped senators daughter, Catherine, is the lamb, and Harris uses animal imagery to subtly evoke a lamb and the memory of the slaughter of the lambs that haunts Clarice.
Its brilliant because it makes Lecter all knowing, but it also clearly spells out Clarices desire, which the audience/reader really does need to know to commit to the character and relax into the story. Im a big believer in just spelling it out.
In The Silence of the Lambs, Clarices outer desire is for advancement in the FBI. And Harris conveys this desire in what is a brilliant storytelling trick: he has Dr. Lecter tell her so. Youre sooooo ambitious, arent you? Lecter purrs. Ill give you what you most desire, Clarice. Advancement.
