Malcome aka Malvolio
by Alejandro Castillo
identity part 1
In the movie "she's the man" Malvolio seems to often think that he is in charge and views himself as a boss. The reason that Malvolio views himself as a boss is because he likes to be in charge and likes telling people what to do. Another way that Malvolio is viewed is being stuck up because if he doesn't get his way he is obnoxious. In the movie she's the man towards the end when Sebastian himself is actually playing soccer Malvolio is still determined to prove that Sebastian is actually a girl but to his surprise the person who was playing was actually Sebastian making him look dumb in front of everyone and proving how determined and full of him self for thinking he was right. Malvolio also seems to only care about himself throughout the whole movie because he is just concentrated on proving Sebastian is actually a female.
gender part 1
In the movie "she's the man" Malvolio seems to be sort of an outcast since he believes Sebastian is actually a female and everybody believes that Sebastian is a boy. In the end of the movie there is only so much Malvolio can actually do or say after the truth comes out that viola has actually been impersonating Sebastian for her own selfish reasons. Throughout the whole movie Malvolio is often viewed as being an obnoxious, rude character. We also see how in the movie Malvolio might be a jerk and ignorant but he isn't as bad as he is in the play.
perception part 1
Everybody in the movie "she's the man" views Malvolio as being careless when it comes to exposing Sebastian(viola) for who he/she really is. Another way Malvolio is viewed is being really stupid when he tells the soccer coach that Sebastian is really a girl because nobody really believes him. In the movie Malvolio is often viewed by the other characters as maybe being overly confident because in the end him and a coach try to expose Sebastian thinking he is really a girl in disguise but in the end find out that it was actually Sebastian and not an impersonator. In the movie Malvolio is also viewed as being a boss because of how demanding he is to some of the other characters throughout the movie he is also viewed as being rude
similarties /differences part 1
In the movie "she's the man" and the book twelfth night the character traits from Malvolio are seen in the movie as kind of the same in the book because he is obnoxious and rude. Another similarity that Malvolio has in the movie and in the book is that he is determined to expose Sebastian(viola) for who she really is. One big difference about the Malvolio in the movie and the book is that in the movie Malvolio is actually a spider but since he isn't human im using Malcom since he resembles And has the same traits as Malvolio. In the movie Malvolio is also viewed as being stuck up, snotty and seems to only care for himself. Another difference in the movie is that we don't hear as much of Malvolio than we do In the book.
identity part 2
In the novel twelfth night Malvolio thinks of himself as a royalty because of the way he answers to certain people in the novel and he is stuck up and thinks that not everybody is worthy enough to talk to him. In the novel Maria asks Malvolio how he is feeling and he responds with "you're asking me! Noble people don't answer to peasants!" at that moment in the novel we see Malvolio more as the selfish ignorant jerk he really is(III.iiii.30-35).When he answers to Maria like that we start seeing Malvolio more on how he classifies himself in the novel as some type of god that should be worshiped and we see how cocky and stuck up he really is. We also see when he answers to Maria like that, how he thinks that everybody else is below him and how views himself as a great person. Malvolio in the novel is often more of a jerk to everybody else than he is in the actual movie "she's the man" where he might be stuck and just as obnoxious but he is not as rude as the Malvolio we see in twelfth night.
gender part 2
In the play Malvolio seems to be in it more than he is actually seen in the movie we also hear a little bit more of Malvolio's opinions in the play than we hear in the movie. In the play Malvolio seems to communicate with more of the characters such as Olivia,Maria and a little bit of sir Toby and Fabian but just because he communicates doesn't necessarily mean he treats them fine. Malvolio faces some limitations during the play and the movie because of the fact that he thinks both in the movie and the play that Sebastian is actually a female in disguise so when something major comes up involving Sebastian towards the middle of the play/movie you can count Malvolio will be there trying to prove something to everybody. Although Malvolio doesn't get a lot of benefits in the play considering he is viewed as a selfish jerk we do hear more of his opinions and how he treats people. Malvolio also seems kind of limited at certain parts of the play and movie since he thinks Sebastian is actually a girl so he doesn't communicate with Sebastian(viola) the same way he would if he thought Sebastian was a guy because he is trying to prove Sebastian is a girl in disguise.
perception part 2
In the play and the movie we see Malvolio as a selfish ignorant jerk who only cares about himself and views himself as a type of boss/god that not everybody is worthy of his time. In the play we see more of how Malvolio classifies himself when he answers to Maria practically calling her a peasant and calling himself Noble making out to look that he is different from everybody else and thinks he deserves to be treated like a king. Some of the characters in the play don't seem to view Malvolio as much of a jerk than he really acts out to be. Malvolio seems to be a little bit more confident in the play when he is talking to Olivia considering that he is attracted to her. When we hear Malvolio reply to Olivia when she asks him "don't you think you should go to bed Malvolio?" and he reply's with " to bed! yes sweetheart ,ill come to you"(III.iiii.25-30) we see how Malvolio is actually being friendly with somebody and not down talking somebody.
similarties and differences part 2
A couple of similarities that Malcom and Malvolio have in common is that they both in the movie and the novel are still obnoxious and rude and care about proving Sebastian is actually a girl in disguise. there is a difference between The Malvolio in the movie and in the novel because in the novel Malvolio seems to be a lot more ruthless with his words when he is angry. One act of rudeness that Malvolio says in the novel that makes him worse is when he tells everybody "go hang yourselves! All of you! when Malvolio says this he is just proving how careless and rude he actually is. He also says that his future is brighter than all of theirs again proving how in the playl he is more of an ignorant jerk
