Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Noel Gugliemi’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 Noel Gugliemi 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 Noel Gugliemi 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 Noel Gugliemi’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, Noel Gugliemi 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.

Dialogue to Visual
Example: In the film Forest Gump Forest and Jenny are outside watching fireworks. The scene ends with the fireworks then we see a CLOSE UP of a TV with fireworks and the scene has transitioned from outside to inside where theyre watching the fireworks.
Noel Gugliemi – Scene ends with a visual that carries over in one form or another to another scene.

Okay, heres another analogy. For a time I was a theater director, mostly musical theater, and Ive sat through many an audition. This is always an excruciatingly tense thing in the first couple of seconds of a song, because you do not know if the person in front of you is actually going to be able to sing or not. You are bracing yourself physically bracing yourself, for the very real possibility that this person will not be able to pull off a song at all, which is actually very sad and painful.
Noel Gugliemi – To me, Voice is like the unspoken narrative that makes a dream seem to make sense at the time that you dream it. It gives the action cohesion.
That is the real and completely elusive magic of storytelling: that an author can make all those disparate elements play as an engaging, unbroken whole that literally becomes more important to the reader than their own consciousness. Because its true, isnt it? When we read, we give up our own consciousness, our ego-awareness, to the book, to the story.
But theres a more important Voice that makes a book, and I mean literally makes a book. And that is the way an author puts a bunch of images, actions, thoughts, emotions, and sensations into an order, in words, that puts a reader into the action and makes a reader have the exact experience that the characters are having just like being inside a dream or a movie.
