Added DiffLines:

* MoodWhiplash: Despite being considered a comedy, the movie shifts extremely in its moods. It opens with two people dying and Bardot!Maria being basically homeless, then it jumps to hijincks as the Marias do their first act together, then Moreau!Maria meets Flores, falls in love with him, he dies, and it's a tragedy, then slapstick with the rebellion, and so on.

* OfCorsetsSexy: During their first performance after they team up, the two Marias aren't having much luck pleasing the audience. Then they have a series of accidents which results in their stripping/being stripped down to their tight-laced corsets and black stockings, and they become an instant hit throughout Central America, with the striptease becoming the focus of their act.
