Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Michael Biehn’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 Michael Biehn 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 Michael Biehn 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 Michael Biehn’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, Michael Biehn 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.

There are many more consistency items that could be listed, but this will get you started. The tip is to get in the habit of keeping everything about your script, story, characters, plot, format, etc., consistent! A heightened level of consistency helps the screenwriter rise above the level of amateur and makes the screenwriter look like a pro!
-Keep use of numbers consistent in dialogue. Pros know to either use the actual number (1, 2, 3 ) or write out the number (one, two, three ) in dialogue. The trick is to keep the usage consistent. If you write out the word in one section of dialogue, then do so throughout the script. Note: Most professional proofreaders will advise screenwriters to write out the numbers in dialogue because this clarifies proper pronunciation to the actor.
Michael Biehn – #NAME?
-Keep primary slug indicators consistent! Pros know to keep the slugs consistent and complete. Dont write INT. HOUSE, then write INT. HOUSE DAY. Always write INT. HOUSE DAY. Pros know better than to assume a reader will know its the same day or that its DAY!
THE INCITING INCIDENT/CALL TO ADVENTURE
Michael Biehn – Okay, I lied. Theres nothing useful about this one. Please, please dont do it. Instead, why not try thinking about what it really is to meet The One to see someone for the first time who might just change your entire destiny. Go into your own life, and the lives of everyone around you, and really ask yourself what that moment is. You can dress it up with comedy, thats totally fine, but find something real and meaningful about it. Otherwise, why even bother?
Im already nauseated just making that much of a list, but you get the point. Lets go on to some common elements that are much used, but still useful, used wisely.
