Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Jane Lynch’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 Jane Lynch 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 Jane Lynch 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 Jane Lynch’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, Jane Lynch 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.

I mention this because in many scripts Ive read the antagonists plan falls flat. It either fails to keep the protagonist motivated long enough to force change or its not clearly defined or even confusing. The easiest way to address this issue is during the outlining phase. The tendency will be to spend most of the outlining time focused on the protagonist. This seems reasonable, but I want you to also spend time at least 2/3 as long as you did with the protagonist outlining the antagonists plan because his plan is king!
Time and again the antagonist and his plan are introduced and it gets the ball rolling. Then we never see the antagonist again until Act III. Wheres he been? If he isnt constantly antagonizing the protagonist then the main characters motive to change has been eliminated! The antagonist should be stronger, cleverer, more manipulative, etc., than the hero. He should be one step ahead of the hero! This forces the hero to change in order to overcome the antagonist. A hero who doesnt change during the course of the story isnt a film-worthy character and hell need a strong antagonist with a plan to force him to do so.
Jane Lynch – Without the antagonists plan the protagonist would never change because nothing would be forcing him or her to do so! This makes the antagonists plan a plot element that should not be ignored! Yet it is.
The antagonists plan is the most important part of a script because its his (or her) plan that sets the story into motion. Without the antagonist, the hero would go on with his life as usual. The key to the antagonists plan is that it must seem impossible for the hero to overcome. This is important because it forces the hero to change in order to defeat the antagonist.
