Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Rebecca Mader’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 Rebecca Mader 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 Rebecca Mader 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 Rebecca Mader’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, Rebecca Mader 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.

The trick is to pick one and stick with it consistently throughout the script. For example, if the writer decides to use (V.O.) for all phone conversations in Act I, then dont switch to (FILTERED) in Act II. Consistency is the mark of a pro!
This type of dialogue cue indicator can be used instead of (FILTERED) or (V.O.)
Rebecca Mader – (ON TV), (ON PHONE)
Filtered is used to indicate a characters voice is being heard through an electronic device such as a phone, walkie-talkie, TV, etc.
And the twist is, that injury and Rods recovery on the field, and his bonding with the stadium audience in that moment, is what gets him the contract hes been looking for all along.
Rebecca Mader – And then in the climactic game, what happens? Rod takes a huge hit and is knocked out while he is still not under contract. Its our greatest fear made manifest and plays for maximum emotional impact because it has been set up and spelled out so clearly.
We are reminded of this fear when Rod signs a football for a man in a wheelchair: its a visual representation of what could happen to him.
Jerry is left with only one C-list client, Rod, who decides to be loyal and stick with him. And early on Rod and his wife make the decision not to accept a lowball contract renewal so they can hold out for a real contract, which they are trusting Jerry to get for them. Jerry is worried and tells them that this is a huge risk to Rod, because if he gets injured there will be no insurance. So RISK OF INJURY is set up as a big FEAR for Jerry, Rod, his wife, and us, the audience.
