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

Did you know that a story analyst can flip through a hardcopy screenplay and be able to tell if the story works or not merely by looking at how the pages are laid out without having read a single word? For example, if I flip through a script and I see huge 20-line blocks of endless description, then I know its overwritten. Or if I see endless pages of nothing but dialogue, then I know the script relies too heavily on dialogue and isnt visual enough to reach the big screen.
The Flip Through Test
Will Yun Lee – Does the title grab the reader
Does the title suit the genre
[40:00] That night, Gittes goes back to the reservoir where Mulwray died and hops the fence (a sign clearly states: NO TRESPASSING foreshadowing). As Jake investigates the pipe where Mulwray was found, someone shoots at him and suddenly water rushes over him. He gets caught in the current and this time almost dies; we think this is exactly how Mulwray must have died (but thats not actually true). (ATTACK ON HERO.) Jake limps away; hes lost one shoe, just like Mulwrays corpse (ominous, foreshadowing of possible death. Also its a visual reference to the limping Oedipus. The jeopardy has really escalated, and is about to get worse.).
Will Yun Lee – (Maybe Im totally reading into it, but theres something that evokes Don Quixote with this boy on the drooping horse an image that suggests futility, tilting at windmills.)
[38:00] Jake follows the clue and goes to the bridge where the drunk drowned. It is dry, rocky, deserted but yes, there is some water in the riverbed. (Love the sign: This office space could be yours! an ominous warning.) Jake sees the Mexican boy in white on his horse and asks him what he talked to Mulwray about; the boy says Mulwray wanted to know where the water comes, and he told him it comes in different places every night. Again, this is uneasy imagery, linking Jake even more strongly to the dead Mulwray.
Jake goes down to the morgue to speak to the coroner, whom he obviously knows well (nice cameo with the guy cheerfully coughing his lungs out). BIG CLUE: Jake learns of another drowning, a drunk who died in the L.A. River. Gittes asks how he could have drowned in the drought, the river is dry as a bone.
