There is a lot of talk about “Chef’s Special” as being a family comedy with gay characters and it is suitable for broad audiences. The gay characters are seen as people with good and bad qualities. They are neither perfect nor “poor” members of society—they are just people.
Maxi (Javier Camara) feels that his life is perfect. He is a famous and sought after cool who owns a high class restaurant in Cheuca, Spain ( a district of Madrid where many who live there are gay). He also is gay but his life is problem free. He was once married (a mistake) and his son suddenly finds him. At the same time a new neighbor moves in who just happens to be a very attractive Argentinean ex-soccer player.
Quite naturally comedy follows and even though some of the scenes are quite sexy, this is a wholesome film that all can enjoy.
