Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Cristin Milioti’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 Cristin Milioti 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 Cristin Milioti 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 Cristin Milioti’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, Cristin Milioti 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.

ESTABLISHING RULES & WORLDS
The theme should be the scripts driving force and teach us a lesson. The theme should be evident in Act I as early as possible. Most pro writers introduce a character and his/her internal conflict upon initial introduction. This usually sets up the theme. A movie might look like its about killing aliens or stopping a bomb, but its really about courage, redemption, love, trust, etc. Theme is the emotional core that connects the audience and the hero.
Cristin Milioti – The external conflict should force him to deal with a past issue. There are many themes to explore, but the best way to discover what your scripts theme is is to answer the question, What internal conflict does the external conflict help the character overcome? Or ask it a different way: The external conflict causes what change in my character? The answer will lead you to the theme!
If you cant fill in the blanks, then your script might be lacking an internal conflict and as a result the writer will have a difficult time telling a producer what the theme is because the theme is closely tied to the characters internal conflict.
Okay, do you see how that starts to work? I truly believe that taking the time to analyze what you love and respond to in a villain in the stories you love will get your subconscious working on crafting that perfect villain for your story So much of creativity is the desire to get it right. Make your wishes specific, and magic will start to happen.
Cristin Milioti – #NAME?
– Bob Sugar in Cameron Crowes Jerry Maguire: the blond, blandly sociopathic agent. Not hard to see why I respond to that! But I love Sugar as an example of an effective comedic villain. Hes pitch-perfect; there are hundreds just like him in Hollywood: soulless, narcissistic, casually malevolent. But he also makes a perfect foil for Jerry because he is a mirror image of Jerry: this is what Jerry is on his way to becoming before his attack of conscience in the opening scenes the thing we dont want him to become. A villains story function is often to be the dark mirror of the protagonist, and Sugar is a stellar example.
