Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through David Duchovny’s “Dumbass”
Will Hollywood be a Reason for Change in the Injustice against Men and Women Prisoners?
David Duchovny – 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 David Duchovny 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 David Duchovny 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 David Duchovny’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, David Duchovny 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.

Subplots and the Arc
Take a look at the scenes in Act II. Does each scene move the hero toward his arc? This doesnt mean the hero has to be in the scene. An antagonist preparing a bomb is something the hero will have to deal with later, thus the bomb prep scene contributes to the external conflict, which in turn should be helping the hero change a flaw, like cowardice. For example, the hero may have to find the courage to diffuse the bomb and save the day.
David Duchovny – Arc Scenes
In Act II, the writers main focus should be on the heros arc. Every scene, subplot and every move made by the antagonist should force the hero to face a flaw; a flaw that the hero must change in order to defeat the nemesis. The hero cant decide to change. The key is to force him to change. People dont change easily or shows like Intervention wouldnt be on the air.
David Duchovny – And even though there are lots of twists and things blowing up along the way, thats really it: the basic action of the story.
So after hearing the plan, we understand the entire OVERALL ACTION of the story: Indy is going to find Ravenwood to get the medallion, then use the medallion to find the Ark before Hitlers minions can get it.
And then Indy explains his PLAN to find the Ark: hes going to go find his old mentor, Abner Ravenwood, who is an expert on the Ark and has an ancient Egyptian medallion on which is inscribed the instructions for using the medallion to find the hidden location of the Ark.
