Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Christopher Lambert’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 Christopher Lambert 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 Christopher Lambert 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 Christopher Lambert’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, Christopher Lambert 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.

Lets discuss how to commercialize a 3-Act structure. For those of you who balk at working within such a structure, I can only ask the following: Are you really expecting a producer to buy a story without a beginning, middle and an end?
COMMMERCIALIZE THE 3-ACT STRUCTURE
Christopher Lambert – The problem with this is how is the protagonist strong enough to defeat the antagonist or central conflict if the hero hasnt resolved his flaw? He cant, and this is why these types of scripts fail as a first sale. The writer must understand how these elements are presented in a commercial structure.
When I do receive a script for coverage that appears to have both an internal and an external conflict regardless of whether its primarily plot or character-driven, I tend to find that 99% of the time the writer has the protagonist defeat the external problem by the end of Act II, then they defeat the internal problem in the end (Act III).
Christopher Lambert – The annoying I mean, amazing thing about a good mentor is that they know the protagonist better than the protagonist knows her or himself. From Glinda to Morpheus to Gandalf to Yoda to Hannibal Lecter, the mentor often represents the hero/ines higher power or superego, sometimes both, and always holds the key to the life lesson the hero/ine most needs to learn. And the great thing about a mentor character is that theyre allowed to be on the nose and say exactly what it is that the hero/ine needs and wants and why theyre too screwed up to ever get it (unless of course they do exactly as the mentor tells them to!).
The sidekick, the roommate, the best friend, the love interest, the brother or sister all of these can illuminate different sides of the protagonist. (See the Chinatown story breakdown for a specific discussion of how the employees of Jake Gittes detective agency dramatize the two conflicting sides of Jake himself, and Chapter 39 on Using Character Clusters.)
