Bad Investigate is a 2018 crime-comedy film directed by Brazilian-born Luis Ismael. The movie stars Francisco Menezes as a bumbling private investigator named Artur, who is hired to find a valuable painting that was recently stolen from a wealthy collector's home. The film is set in Lisbon, Portugal, and features a cast of mostly Portuguese actors, including Enrique Arce and Fernanda Serrano.

The movie opens with a scene of the theft of the painting, which is a valuable work of art from the 16th century. The collector, Mr. Domingos, is distraught over the loss of the painting and hires Artur to find it. Artur, who is not the most competent detective, enlists the help of his friend and fellow investigator, Jorge (played by Luis Ismael).

The investigation quickly takes a comedic turn as Artur and Jorge stumble upon a number of bizarre and unlikely suspects. They encounter a trio of bumbling burglars, an eccentric art dealer, and even a group of nuns who seem to have a mysterious connection to the stolen painting.

Throughout the film, Artur is constantly making mistakes and getting himself into increasingly precarious situations. His investigation is further complicated by the arrival of a rival detective, a more experienced and competent investigator who is also looking for the missing painting.

As the investigation continues, Artur and Jorge begin to uncover a web of deception and intrigue, with unexpected twists and turns that keep the audience guessing. Along the way, they are aided by a cast of colorful characters, including a stoned hippie, a flamboyant hairdresser, and even a talking parrot.

Despite his incompetence, Artur manages to stumble upon some crucial pieces of evidence that help to solve the case. But in the end, it is not his investigative skills that save the day, but rather his willingness to take risks and his never-say-die attitude.

Bad Investigate is a quirky and entertaining film that blends elements of comedy, crime, and mystery. The film's humor is at times broad and slapstick, but it also has moments of clever wordplay and subtle humor. The plot is fast-paced and engaging, with plenty of plot twists and turns to keep the audience engaged.

Overall, Bad Investigate is a fun and lighthearted film that should appeal to fans of crime comedies and offbeat humor. The film's cast of likable characters, including the hapless Artur, make it an enjoyable and entertaining viewing experience.
