The screen caps are a delight; the childish boy jokes are endearing, but neither of these would be nearly as much fun without your spot-on commentary. Thank you for including all three!

Why, thank you, Bandwench. I consider that high praise, since your own LJ is so entertainingly written. Yes, their pranks are endearing. There is a big difference between mean-boy-pranks and those that real comrades play on each other.

I think it was great that there were men of all ages and levels of life experience on this shoot. That must have helped things from getting too over the top, which might have been the case if all the men were young and sparring for who was top dog.

They all spoke so fondly of the teasing and pranks that it is easy to believe that it was a very important part of why the group dynamics worked so well, and made the movie the joy that it is to watch. And Elijah especially seemed happy about having been included--perhaps it was the first time he had truly been in a group and got to enjoy such bonding other than perhaps with his brother at home. (Although Zach is enough older, even that might have been a limited interaction or a completely different dynamic.) I think this was probably the first time he was truly "one of the guys" in a big group.

I am sure you were right -- and he it seems he really loved it. A frat boy at last -- and he didn't even have to go to college!
