Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Johnathon Schaech’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 Johnathon Schaech 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 Johnathon Schaech 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 Johnathon Schaech’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, Johnathon Schaech 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.

Avoid Q&A Sessions
Johnathon Schaech – What does this mean to you? It means you need to look at the information in a scene. Try to find ways to convey the information visually rather than via dialogue. Visuals first, dialogue second. A simple touch can be more powerful than saying I love you. If you find youre more in tune with dialogue and are having a difficult time visualizing the story, then maybe youre a TV writer because you arent a screenwriter.
Films a visual medium. This means it relies primarily on visuals to deliver the story rather than dialogue. If you dont know what I mean compare how TV delivers information compared to movies. TV is a talking heads, dialogue medium. For example, in the hit detective show Psych the fake, psychic detective tells us how the murderer did his deed in one segment at the end of the show. Hell usually say something like, Let me tell you what happened. This would never take place in a movie! In a film we need to see the murder plot unfold visually without having anyone tell us how the murderer almost got away with the crime.
So you get this film as a short sequence breakdown instead of one of the long ones!
Johnathon Schaech – Which for me redeems the whole movie, although I could have done without the swelling Somewhere Over the Rainbow, but Ive heard from others that they find it a weak ending. And some people really hate it. The sticking point seems to be that Tom never really atones for putting Meg out of business, much less has any kind of character revelation that would make him help her stay in business; its just business as usual for him. While I think Tom Hanks, as an actor, has the decency and charisma to make the character likeable, the character as written is a turn-off for a lot of people Ive heard from.
And in the final, final scene, the ACT THREE CLIMAX, he arranges for her to meet his online persona in the 121st Street Garden and shows up as himself. Meg starts to cry and tells him, I wanted it to be you. I wanted it to be you so badly, before they finally kiss (1 hour 55 minutes).
.is the battle a love battle because Tom really is fighting to win her: by being charming and by being her friend while he disparages her online relationship and tries to get her to detach herself from that fantasy. He has that great speech just before she goes off to meet his online persona: Ever wonder what it would have been like if Id just met you and I hadnt been your competition, and just asked you to a movie, or to coffee for as long as we both shall live? (Im paraphrasing, but something like that its very well-written and played.)
