Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Christina Applegate’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 Christina Applegate 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 Christina Applegate 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 Christina Applegate’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, Christina Applegate 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.

Christina Applegate – ACT II
In terms of character arc, series hero/ines are a different animal than standalone hero/ines. One theory is that readers who are devoted to a series character really just want to see the same person, over and over again.
Christina Applegate – CHARACTER ARC AND SERIES CHARACTERS
Its helpful to start taking note of often-seen character arcs: a child who becomes an adult (Spirited Away, Roman Holiday), a citizen who becomes a leader (Its a Wonderful Life, Mr. Deeds Goes to Washington), a commoner who ascends to royalty (Princess Diaries, Harry Potter), a broken person who becomes whole (Groundhog Day), a selfish person who becomes altruistic (A Christmas Carol), a person who lives in illusion who finally sees the truth (The Matrix), a criminal or sinner who becomes a leader (or saint!) (Becket).
· A third pattern, though, is a hero who fails or falls. The Godfather shows the moral fall of Michael Corleone (even as he rises in societal stature). Chinatown depicts the fall of Jake Gittes, despite his sincere and determined attempts to do the right thing. While Michael Corleone makes the choices he makes deliberately (although the pressure of family history weighs heavily); Jake is a pawn, up against the greater forces of a malevolent universe. The only thing Jake learns in Chinatown is that his best efforts are useless; he should have learned his lesson long ago that the only way to survive and not do damage is to do as little as possible.
