OK, films showing teamwork, non-military: try Topkapi <sp?>; or Ocean's
Eleven (which even has the moral of: Crime doesn't pay). In fact many of
the Sinatra-Martin-Davis-Bishop movies show teamwork and in a comedic
fashion. There was a Cary Grant movie (To Catch a Thief, maybe?) that
involved a great deal of coordination and teamwork. -- OK, so I skipped
school to watch the Afternoon Movie! <G>
The more recent Short-Circuit movies had a touch of that as well as the
hero, the robot and the girlfriend worked together to save the robot.
Just a thought.
