Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Michael Caine’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 Michael Caine 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 Michael Caine 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 Michael Caine’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, Michael Caine 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.

What if the character is required to give a political speech thats bound to run over 4 lines? Then simply break up the lengthy dialogue with action/description. What are we seeing as the character speaks? Is he fidgeting? Is the audience rolling their eyes, shuffling in their seats or leaving? By breaking up the lengthy dialogue, the screenwriter keeps the visual flow moving. Never forget that films a visual medium and this means paying close attention to the visual details and knowing when to use them to break up lengthy dialogue.
Even if the scene is a dramatic moment, keep the description broken into manageable paragraphs of no more than four lines total. Another tip is to only write description thats incorporated with the action to avoid writing details that are unnecessary.
Michael Caine – How does this work if the screenwriter has a non-stop action scene with no dialogue and all description? The answer is simple: break up the action into manageable blocks of no more than 4-line paragraphs. In fact, if the scene involves action, its advisable to use even shorter description lines that are deliberately broken up to give the visual feel of moving fast on the page. Keep the lines short so the description tends to grip the left margin. This makes for a fast read!
When is description and/or dialogue too lengthy? The rule is no more than 4-lines of description or 4-lines of dialogue.
In a love story, the Ghost or Wound is most often related to love and attachment, obviously: the heroines parents died when she was a child (The Proposal), the heros father has had a succession of failed marriages (Made of Honor, Youve Got Mail), the heroines father was always chasing rainbows, impoverishing the family (Leap Year).
