Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through David Giuntoli’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 David Giuntoli 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 David Giuntoli 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 David Giuntoli’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, David Giuntoli 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.

No time to send the antagonist on a vacation. Hes here for one purpose; to take on the hero. He should be stronger, faster, smarter, more street-smart, savvy, etc. If hes the heros equal, the story fails! The reason he should be stronger is because it forces the hero to rise to the occasion and fix his flaw in order to defeat the nemesis. Everything the nemesis does should challenge the heros flaw (internal conflict).
Antagonist and the Arc
David Giuntoli – Subplots are obviously going to be different from the main external and internal conflicts, but the way to make this contribute to the hero is to make it reflective of the heros internal conflict. For example, if the hero has a commitment issue (hes 40 and never been married), a subplot might revolve around his brother whos struggling to keep his marriage together. The contrast between a commitment phobic hero and his committed brother reflects the heros internal conflict.
Subplots and the Arc
David Giuntoli – At the same time, Bill (THE ANTAGONIST) kidnaps another victim, Catherine Martin. And from there, Clarice has a DESIRE of her own: to save Catherines life (STAKES). Her PLAN (and the CENTRAL ACTION of the story) is to persuade Lecter to divulge Buffalo Bills identity and location, even if it means doing what her FBI mentor has warned her not to do at any cost: divulge deeply personal information to this psychopathic genius. (Note how genre-specific that central action is: its going to require psychological manipulation and gamesmanship, and this is a keenly, excruciatingly psychological thriller. Also note that Lecter is not the antagonist in Silence; he is the MENTOR.)
In the first act of Silence, Clarice gets an assignment, an interesting errand from her teacher at the FBI academy: she is to interview Hannibal Lecter, an imprisoned psychopath, for a new database of serial killers (INCITING INCIDENT/CALL TO ADVENTURE). But when she walks into the basement dungeon where Lecter is kept, he assumes that she is actually there to ask him about a new, active serial killer, Buffalo Bill (and hes right). Lecter tosses Clarice a clue to follow, and Clarice follows up, and when she finds the severed, preserved head of an old patient of Lecters hidden in a storage unit, she realizes that Lecter knows Buffalo Bill. Lecter is pleased with her investigative skills and promises, Ill help you catch him, Clarice.
