Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Uma Thurman’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 Uma Thurman 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 Uma Thurman 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 Uma Thurman’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, Uma Thurman 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.

Protagonist is easy to distinguish from other characters
Uma Thurman – Plot has an underlying theme
Plot maintains the genre
Theres a nice comic moment with Curly chewing the Venetian blinds. Jake is hiding his contempt for Curlys emotion; hes cynical, above it all but thats going to change.
Uma Thurman – We see Jake in his office on a typical day. We see immediately that Jake is doing well for himself this is a nice office, nice artwork, nice clothes, a staff of two operatives and a secretary. Hes not a scraggly PI sleeping in his office, not a down-and-out drunk. This is important when youre writing a story that ends with the hero/ines fall. If you start your character too low to begin with, theres no place for him or her to fall. So even though we can see that Jake has some issues, hes doing all right in the beginning. But not great. If he were doing great, wed know he was in for a fall, because contrast is the nature of drama, right? Its a delicate balance.
INTRODUCTION OF HERO IN ORDINARY WORLD.
OPENING IMAGE is sex. The dirty laundry photos that Jakes operatives have taken of client Curlys wife, in flagrante, with Curly moaning in pain as he flips through them. Its not just sex, its doggy-style. This starts one of the films main image systems/themes: incest and perverse sex. The whole film oozes with it.
