Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Valorie Curry’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 Valorie Curry 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 Valorie Curry 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 Valorie Curry’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, Valorie Curry 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.

This film also beautifully depicts the central fact about Los Angeles that every native is always aware of: L.A. really is a desert, and never more than a few thousand gallons away from dying of thirst.
Valorie Curry – An important note: Chinatown is based on historical fact. The character of Mulwray (and Cross) is based on William Mulholland, the real-life former head of the L.A. Department of Water and Power. The storyline about the 500 people killed in the dam collapse that we hear from Mulwray in the courtroom, and the water diversion and the incorporation of the Valley that we will learn about its all completely based on fact, and I encourage you to read a little about the history so that you can appreciate how beautifully this film dramatizes fact, in case youre doing that or ever do.
[5:46] Cut to: Courthouse, where Jake attends a Water and Power hearing as he starts to tail Mulwray. Big set up of a main THEME and the ARENA and BACKSTORY: L.A. is in the midst of a bad drought, and farmers and city dwellers alike are getting desperate. Great speech about how L.A. is a desert and could easily return to being a desert. Officials argue that the dam will save the city.
We see Jake and his operatives interest in money: Jake takes the case when he learns Mrs. Mulwrays husband is the Chief Engineer of Water and Power, and that money is no object to her.
