Hit Australian mockumentary about Kenny Smyth - divorced with a son, and porta-loo attendant ('plummer' if you ask him). From the biggest festival to the smallest church social, Kenny delivers porta-loos to them all. Part philosopher, part comedian and all heart, Kenny is one of the cogs in society’s machinery; a knight in shining overalls taking care of business for the Splashdown company. The film lifts the lid on one of Australia’s roughest diamonds, as he juggles family tensions, fatherhood and sewage with charm, humour and unflinching dignity.

'KENNY' IS A MOCKUMENTARY OF THE TRIALS AND TRIUBATIONS OF AN ORDINARY AUSSIE BLOKE DOING WHAT HE DOES BEST: EARNING AN HONEST LIVING, BEING A HARDWORKING AND DECENT PERSON AND A LOVING SON AND FATHER. IF YOU DON'T MIND A BIT OF 'DOWN-TO-EARTH' HUMOUR, YOU'LL FIND 'KENNY' WARM-HEARTED AND WITTY AND THE CENTRAL CHARACTER THOROUGHLY ENGAGING. (NOT A MOVIE FOR YOUNG CHILDREN).
An amusing film with some fantastic one-liners and a couple of nice sequences but over all doesn’t deliver. Lacks a strong structure and runs out of material before the end, resulting in no real climax. If you’re a fan of mocumentaries or Aussie films then maybe worth a look but definitely not to everyone’s taste, with at least six people walked out of my screening.
