Kenny Videos & Photos
Filmmaker Clayton Jacobson profiles one of the key cogs in society's massive machine with this mockumentary about a fearless Aussie plumber who has never encountered a drain he wasn't able to conquer. A combination of philosopher and comedian, Kenny (Shane Jacobson) has a heart the size of a septic tank. Though Kenny may hold one of the most thankless jobs in modern society, he never lets the dirty work get him down. Now, as Kenny juggles family tensions, leaking porta-johns, and the constant demands of fatherhood while preparing for the upcoming Pump and Cleaner Expo in Nashville, Tennessee, he and his loyal "Splashdown" crew are profiled by a documentary crew that isn't about to let some dirty overalls get in the way of a good story. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi … More

Critic Reviews for Kenny
The film's real accomplishment, in this era of masked superheroes, is making a paladin of a regular guy whose ethics we can all emulate.
The Australian charmer Kenny, about a hard-working, jovial employee for a portable toilet company, is a low-key study of underdog pride rather than a Larry the Cable Guy bodily function jokefest.
A hit and prize winner in Australia, Kenny has the power to charm, no matter which way the water swirls.
The result is a minor masterpiece of tone in Kenny's portrayal of a character that is absurd, guileless and shrewd at the same time.
Audience Reviews for Kenny
This is another movie that manages to be sweet despite its subject matter. I think it's all about tone. This is about a loo plumber and how he's treated by the world. It's strange to see how the guy's job colours (and doesn't) the rest of his personality. I guess the moral of this story is that every job that exists needs to be done, and no one is defined by what they do for a living.
The Australian's capture the spirit of 'The Office' in the unlikely guise of a loo attendant/plumber mockumentary with real heart. Kenny is disarming and full of wonderful aphorisms on life but it is his faltering relationship with his father and potential partner which had me rooting for him.
Did anyone confirm whether or not this was a documentary or a drama? I think that it is a drama attempting to be documentary like but regardless, this is hilarious. Who knew that port a potties could be such a source of entertainment.
