Billy Joel / NY Mets documentary is a home run...
27 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you 1) love baseball, 2) love Billy Joel, 3) love New York or 4) love the New York Mets - or any combination of the four - you will be mesmerized by this entertaining documentary that parallels the career of "Piano Man" Joel and the 44-year tenants of Shea Stadium (Queens, NY) - the New York Mets.

In July 2008, Joel closed out Shea's history of concerts - which began with the Beatles' memorable show in 1965 - by performing two nights alongside guests that included Paul McCartney, Steven Tyler, Don Henley, Garth Brooks and Tony Bennett.

Don't be mistaken though - this is not a concert film, but a look back at the history and highlights of two NY institutions - Shea and Joel. The doc is very nostalgic; chock full of great music, quick interviews with past Mets greats (Seaver, Strawberry, Hernandez, Piazza) and Joel's crew/lifelong friends (and wives). The result is a wonderful, fast-paced mix of history and culture (granted, very NY-skewed) that, in a word and with apologies to the Mets, is simply Amazin'.
