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

means to write only whats part of the action
Less is more
Nicholas Brendon – I get the picture, but wheres the emotional involvement in this scene? I feel like Im reading a grocery list.
A full moon. Pumpkins. Costumed kids. Jack-o-lanterns.
That movie has a blatant fairy tale structure, and as in so many fairy tales, the heroine is told by her mentor and ally, the Faun, that she must perform three tasks to save the underworld kingdom and reclaim her place as the princess of that world (and thus escape her horrifying reality in 1944 Spain).
Nicholas Brendon – I recently, finally, saw Pans Labyrinth. I know, Im way late on that one, and Del Toro is one of my favorite writer/directors. Its wonderful, heartbreaking.
The Silence of the Lambs, Red Dragon, The Exorcist, The Godfather, A Wrinkle in Time, Star Wars, The Treatment (by Mo Hayder): every single one of them is a fairy tale. And fairy tales have their own structural elements that just work for me.
But when I respond deeply to a movie or book, no matter how realistic and modern it seems on the surface, chances are its going to have a fairy tale structure, or at least fairy tale elements.
