Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Temuera Morrison’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 Temuera Morrison 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 Temuera Morrison 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 Temuera Morrison’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, Temuera Morrison 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.

Heres what short Acts mean:
What if the script is under 90 pages? Then somethings most likely wrong. A short script means the hero wasnt given enough conflict to overcome or the antagonist has disappeared for a majority of the story when he should have been going head-to-head with the protagonist.
Temuera Morrison – What if the script is a combination of genres? What if its an action/comedy? Ask yourself, if the movie were in a video store, what shelf would it be on, the action shelf or the comedy shelf? Which genre takes up the most screen time, the action or the comedy? One will probably stand out as the primary genre. Go with the page length for this genre.
Psychological horror can be slightly longer at 110-115 pages, but if it relies heavily on visual effects, then go with the lower page count.
[2.18] And then the finale is the Great Hall scene, the closing ceremonies of the school. (This is a very typical step in mythic structure: the CEREMONY AND AWARDS. Think of the end of The Wizard of Oz and the first Star Wars. Most movies end very quickly after the final battle, but a story with mythic structure often has a long epilogue like the one we see here.) Slytherin has won the House Cup, but at the last moment, Dumbledore awards a final set of points: 50 to Hermione for application of her lessons, 50 to Ron for the best chess game ever played at Hogwarts, 60 to Harry for bravery, and 10 to Neville for having the courage to stand up to his friends.
Temuera Morrison – [2.17] Ron and Hermione are waiting outside for Harry, and the three joyfully reunite.
[2.14] Harry wakes up in the school infirmary, surrounded by presents and flowers. Dumbledore comes to see him and explains that Harry was able to destroy Quirrell because Harrys mother sacrificed herself to save him, the ultimate act of love, and that love is in Harrys very skin. (GIFT FROM PARENT.)
Harry refuses and Quirrell tries to attack Harry, but every time he makes contact with Harry, another part of Quirrells body crumbles to powder, until he collapses. The shadowy Voldemort flies at Harry in a rage, then flies out of the chamber. Harry passes out.
