Australian Kenny Smyth (Shane Jacobson) has possibly one of the most thankless and off-putting occupations imaginable: He's a plumber who specializes in delivering and maintaining portable toilets to well-populated events. Mockumentary cameras follow Smyth as he juggles his family life with his excrement-soaked travails and eventually works his way to the highlight of his career -- a visit to the International Pumper and Cleaner Expo in Nashville, Tenn., a gathering for renowned plumbing pros.

What to Know

Critics Consensus

Kenny uses its seemingly lowbrow mockumentary premise as the foundation for a well-acted and surprisingly thoughtful character study.

Jim Schembri The Age (Australia) Few comic characters come with that degree of wit, let alone a philosophy. Sep 17, 2018 Full Review Jake Wilson The Age (Australia) It's a risky strategy, but one that pays off triumphantly here. Sep 17, 2018 Full Review David Jenkins Time Out An unexpectedly charming and bitingly funny mock doc. Rated: 4/5 Sep 17, 2018 Full Review Matt Neal Movies Ate My Life It would have been easy for Kenny to fail, but Jacobson's sincerity in the lead role makes it not just succeed - it makes it iconic. Rated: 5/5 Jan 26, 2022 Full Review Ken Eisner Georgia Straight Much of the film is played for laughs, and giggles come easily when toilet humour is this available and, uniquely, appropriate. Jul 6, 2010 Full Review Russell Baillie New Zealand Herald Kenny is hilarious - toilet humour and all - and surprisingly touching. Just remember to wash your hands afterwards. Rated: 4/5 Oct 18, 2008 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member Loved it! Bloody crackin true okker show. The castle and this - probably two best aussie comedies of this doco style. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 07/14/24 Full Review Grant Probably the best Australian movie ever made. Funny, heart warming, clever script. Aussie larrikin meets learned philosopher. Kenny teaches us some valuable life lessons about how to live, love, and remain curious and open minded. And, to never judge someone for the work uniform they wear. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/07/24 Full Review Cat W Ghastly. Not at all funny. Fell asleep. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 06/12/21 Full Review Shaun D I hated it, wasn't funny or amusing at all. I turned it off after 40 minutes. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 05/08/20 Full Review kevin w An interesting character study about living with class stigmatism given legs by the performance of the principal actor's natural presence. Good stuff. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member A great film and very funny Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Read all reviews
