Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Sybil Danning’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 Sybil Danning 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 Sybil Danning 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 Sybil Danning’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, Sybil Danning 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.

Triple dots ( ) in dialogue tells the actor that the dialogue trails off. Heres an example:
If a Double Dash (–) appears in the scenes description, the actors knows to break up the action and/or visual movement!
Sybil Danning – Ill tell you whatever I want!
[1.24] In a brief coda to the Act, the three kids tell Hagrid that Snape cursed Harrys broom. Hagrid doesnt believe it for a second. In a series of Hagrids slips of the tongue, the kids learn that there is a secret way to calm the three-headed dog, Fluffy (but not the specifics), and that whatever Fluffy is guarding has to do with someone named Nicholas Flamel. CLUES, MYSTERY PLOT.
Sybil Danning – Harry snatches the golden snitch (actually, swallows it) to win the match and enjoys a moment of triumph. So thats the MIDPOINT CLIMAX a big setpiece, a big triumph but also theres the game-changer revelation that someone is trying to kill Harry. The STAKES have just gone up enormously. [1.23]
Then toward the end of the match, Harrys broom starts to go crazy (ATTACK ON HERO, JEOPARDY), and Hermione sees Snape muttering in the stands and assumes that Snape is cursing the broom and trying to kill Harry (of course the real culprit, Quirrell, is standing right behind Snape in the shot). Hermione runs through the stands (SUSPENSE) and uses magic to set Snapes cloak on fire. (ALLYS SPECIAL SKILL.) Quirrell is knocked over in the scuffle and Harrys broom returns to normal, but it looks like Snape is the one who has been foiled. (Continuing the theme of Who is good and who is bad?)
[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.
