THE BEST LAST BEST PLANE RIDE EVER

Drama, Comedy, Sports, Documentary
In October of 1986, the NY Mets beat the Houston Astros in the NLCS in one of the most dramatic series of the decade. This film recreates their post-game airplane celebration: three hours of unbridled chaos resulting in an airplane interior that was almost completely destroyed.
