Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Alison Becker’s “Dumbass”

Will Hollywood be a Reason for Change in the Injustice against Men and Women Prisoners?

Alison Becker – 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 Alison Becker 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 Alison Becker 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 Alison Becker’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, Alison Becker 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.

I’m sure you can list many films that don’t have any real twist, but I guarantee for a first sale you MUST have one! Unless of course you already have an extraordinary marketing network of A-list actors, directors, producers and agents at your disposal, but if you did you wouldn’t need to read this material.

Whether or not you liked these films and whether or not they eventually became big box office success, originally their concepts were considered commercially viable and the films got made. This is because the screenwriter took an ordinary idea about a homicide, a monster, a killer, a downed aircraft, identity theft, a gunslinger or a romance, and gave it a twist! This twist wasn’t just a big twist ending – these twists applied to the entire plot. A big twist ending isn’t enough for a commercial sale. The twist must apply to the entire concept! The idea itself must have a twist!

Alison Becker – The Twist Must Apply to the Entire Plot

Commercial Twist: She’s mistaken for his fiancé while he’s in a coma.

That one sentence is also referred to as a “logline” or “one line” (in Hollywood) or “the elevator pitch” (in publishing) or “the TV Guide pitch” — it all means the same thing.

Alison Becker – In other words, “What’s the story line in one easily understandable sentence?”

When people ask you what your book is about, what they are really asking is: “What’s the premise?”

And here’s another tip. When people ask you what your book is about, the answer is not “War” or “Love” or “Betrayal,” even though your book might be about one or all of those things. Those words don’t distinguish your book from any of the millions of books about those subjects.
