Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Grant Parsons’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 Grant Parsons 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 Grant Parsons 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 Grant Parsons’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, Grant Parsons 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.

Interesting Character Moment Who is this master wedding planner? How do you get a job like that?
What about the protagonists introduction in the romantic comedy The Wedding Planner? We see the female lead character pull off a wedding on the verge of falling apart and she does it all with her suit full of fix-it items. If she were in the military shed be considered armed and dangerous.
Grant Parsons – Internal Conflict Introduction This guy is very immature.
Interesting Character Moment Not often you see a Dad dancing on a table.
Topped only by the sudden surfacing of the beloved Richard Dreyfuss character, who has, after all, survived (in the book he died, but was far less of a good guy). The effect is pure elation.
Grant Parsons – And it is a wildly implausible scene, but you go with it. That shark has just eaten Quint, whom we have implausibly come to love (through the male bonding, and then that incredible revelation of his experience being one of the crew of the wrecked naval cruiser that were eaten, one by one, by sharks). And when Brody, clinging to the mast of the almost entirely submerged boat, aims one last time and hits that shark, and it explodes in water, flesh and blood it is an amazing catharsis.
Spielberg found that emotionally unsatisfying. He wanted something bigger, something exciting, something that would have audiences on their feet and cheering. He proposed the oxygen tank: that Brody would first shove a tank of compressed air into the sharks mouth, and then fire at it until he hit the tank and the shark went up in a gigantic explosion. Benchley argued that it was completely absurd; no one would ever believe that could happen. Spielberg countered that he had taken the audience on the journey all this time we were with the characters every step of the way. The audience would trust him if he did it right.
Peter Benchley, the author and co-screenwriter, was talking about the ending of the film. He said that from the beginning of production, Spielberg had been ragging on him about the ending; he said it was too much of a downer. For one thing, the visual wasnt right. If youll recall the book, once Sheriff Brody has killed the shark (not by blowing it up), the creature spirals slowly down to the bottom of the sea, taking Quint with it.
