LOS FABULOSOS MA’ MEJORES (The Fabulous at theirs Best) 

Carlos Manuel Plasencia | Dominican Republic, | Comedy, Family | 2018 | 90’ | Spanish with English subtitles

Kids’ baseball coach Chelo Rosario is in a slump: he has no money, no job and his baseball team is spectacularly bad. But when he hears a public service announcement on the radio for the first National Kid’s Baseball Tournament, he recruits Joanna (Denise Quiñones, Miss Universe 2001), the beautiful mother of one of his team’s players, to help him get his team in shape. In the grand tradition of such family-friendly sports comedies as “The Bad News Bears,” “Los Fabulosos Ma’ Mejores” will delight audiences of all ages with the travails and triumphs of this underdog team.
