Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Susan Sarandon’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 Susan Sarandon 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 Susan Sarandon 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 Susan Sarandon’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, Susan Sarandon 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.

What? Dont tell me what —
Susan Sarandon – SUSAN
This is the way he —
[1.15] Going onto the Quidditch field. The next ten minutes of the movie are the Quidditch match: an action sequence (with some mystery clues woven in). This is a great film technique and one thats especially useful to use around the Midpoint: an action scene keeps the story moving, but allows the audience a break from thinking; they can enjoy the visceral ride without having to figure out whats going on. The announcer kid is way too enthusiastic for my taste, but the constant commentary serves the purpose of letting us know whats going on in the Quidditch match without making us strain our brains to follow the action.
Susan Sarandon – The three kids are eating in the Great Hall before Harrys first Quidditch match. Snape oozes by to wish Harry good luck in a tone that sounds more like hes saying I hope you crash and burn. (RED HERRING.) Harry tells Ron and Hermione that he thinks Snape let the troll loose in the school to cause a diversion so that he could get to whatever the three-headed dog is guarding on the third floor. (DETECTIVE VOICING HIS THEORY.) An owl flies in and delivers Harry a coveted Nimbus 2000 broom a gift from McGonagall. (This is a classic mythic and fairy tale story element: GIFTS FROM MENTORS.)
So this action sequence has BONDED the three for good, now. This whole sequence (or really two sequences) uses the story elements of Assembling the Team, Training Sequence, and Testing Sequence, as well as Planting Clues. A lot to weave in, but the genius of Harry Potter is that it mixes so many different genres: Fantasy, Action, Mystery, and the Mentor story and does all of them well. [1.14]
