Something I found interesting and confusing in the movie She’s the Man is how easy it is to spot that Viola is a woman. She always forgets to change her voice or to act like a man, yet no one ever notices anything wrong with her. All of the characters act confused for a second and everything goes back to normal as soon as she changes her voice to a man. We in the audience know about her disguise, so that may have helped us see the difference so easily. This is willing suspension of disbelief because the director is intent on letting the audiences see through her disguise. On the other hand, the characters have no idea about her disguise and they thought she was a man the whole time. It might be difficult for them to spot out the difference between a man and a woman. As we accept this suspension of disbelief, it reveals dramatic irony in the plot; where the audience notices Viola’s slip-ups but the majority of the characters in the movie do not. This technique helps enhance the movie’s comedic feature.
