Loved this movie! You've never heard of it, but please do yourself a favor and watch it. It isn't just bathroom humor. It has one of the best written characters I've seen in a long time.

Wonderful Taste of Australian Culture
Janet Brister | Broken Arrow, OK United States | 09/19/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was fortunate to take a trip to Australia after this film had been released. One of the people there told me this mocumentary was the best example of Australians he knew. He also said many Australians believed Kenny was an actual person because the porta-potty company for which he works is a real company in Australia.

I was mesmerized from the start.

If you like the TV series "Dirty Jobs" you are going to thoroughly enjoy this movie!

Kenny is a classy guy who takes pride in his not-so-classy job. I'm thrilled I can finally add this movie to my DVD collection!"

"I saw Kenny earlier this year in Australia, and found it completely delightful. I was skeptical at first -- many mockumentary characters are vapid, worthless imbeciles who serve only as whetstones for the writers to sharpen their sarcasm on, headcases with no self-awareness and even less personal appeal.

Kenny is just the opposite. He is a decent, ordinary bloke with a son who's not sure what to think of him, a father who's out-and-out ashamed of him, and a job that's thankless in the extreme... but he handles every turn with humor, grace, and some very sturdy work gloves.

Somehow amidst a plot full of absurd toilet humor (that somehow manages never to be crass) and riotously funny fish-out-of-water scenes, this movie made me a bit teary-eyed. It's a human film from start to finish, with comedy and pathos enough to satisfy even the most jaded movie-goer."
Walking in Another Man's Filthy Boots
Rocky Raccoon | Boise, ID | 10/12/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"An Australian indie film, 'Kenny' has us following in the boots of an easy-going port-o-rental worker whose day-to-day struggle is more than about filth as it about people's attitudes. Filled with empathy and good humor, the title character (a lisping Shane Jacobson) frames the prima donnas he meets who easily show how much people take for his indispensable (sorry!) work for granted. There's a lot of poop to contend in his life (in more ways than one), but the film takes an even keel when Kenny goes to a bathroom rental convention in Nashville, Tennessee where he meets a warm and engaging stewardess. Yes, there's potty humor for sure, but so much more!
