Sánchez & Gato Mejía

Created by Jimenez Mauren, Oscar Castillo, Rovinsky Samuel

SÁNCHEZ and GATO MEJÍA are two jaw-droppingly inept private eyes who bumble their way through a murder investigation in the R-rated Asesinato en el Meneo (2001) from Costa Rica.

Netflix tags it as a "playful parody of hard-boiled detective movies" set amidst "a world packed with sensuality, love, betrayal and corruption."

Sensuality? Must mean someone flashes her tits.

By all accounts, this film is bad, bad, bad.
