Twelfth Man

By: Grayson Dikes

Low Comedy

Movie:

"Oh. Right. OWW! OH, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! IT BURNS!"

When playing soccer they kick the ball to her and it hits her in the "balls" and at first she doesn't act like anything happened then she over exaggerates the pain.

Play:

"Remember who commended thy yellow stockings, and yet to see thee ever cross-gartered."

He had been tricked into thinking Olivia like that type of clothing. LOL.

Farce

In both "She's the Man" and "Twelfth Night" they both have the situation of mistaken identity. They both have twins of the opposite sex and the girls pretend to be the boys.

Comedy of Manners

In "Twelfth Night" malvolio is made fun of for wearing some stupid tights, and in the movie "She's the Man" Viola is dressed as Sebastion and then Sebastions girlfriend confronts him thinking it was her boyfriend and not her boyfriends sister. She then later calls her ugly.

Comedy of Ideas

In the end of both the movie and play their identities are revealed and they resolve them pretending to be men.

Comparing and Contrasting

In both the play "Twelfth Night" and "She's the Man" show different eras of the same joke. In the older play they don't lash out as much as they did in the movie. In the movie they were more harsh with their words. In the play they were more classy with how they put down the other, and how they outwitted each other.
