Storyline

From the biggest festival to the smallest church social, Kenny Smyth delivers porta-loos to them all. Ignored and unappreciated, he is one of the cogs in society's machinery; a knight in shining overalls taking care of business with his faithful 'Splashdown' crew. Follow Kenny as he tackles every septic challenge that comes his way, culminating in a pilgrimage to that Mecca of waste management, the International Pumper and Cleaner Expo in Nashville Tennessee - or as Kenny affectionately calls it, "Poo HQ". With fly-on-the-wall honesty and wit, 'KENNY' lifts the lid on one of Australia's roughest diamonds as he juggles family tensions, fatherhood and sewage with charm, humour and unflinching dignity. "It takes a certain kind of person to do what I do... No-one's ever impressed; no-one's ever fascinated... If you're a fireman, all the kids will want to jump on the back of the truck and follow you to a fire. There's going to be no kids willing to do that with me. So, I don't do it to ...

Trivia

During the only scene in which Kenny's ex-wife appears on camera (when dropping off their son), her image is pixellated. At the St. Kilda festival event a woman complains that she has dropped her ring and needs assistance in its recovery. Both roles are in fact played by Vicki Musso. See more »

Goofs

When Kenny goes to pick up his son for the first time and we hear the door close sound-wise, the door is slightly ajar as the handle was not turned to signal the door closing. See more »

Quotes

Father: Well, you know what they say son? It's an old saying. "The chef always ruins his first batch of scones." And there goes my first burnt offering there. He's as useless as tits on a bull.

At the end of the closing credits the words "The End" are suddenly replaced by "The ARSE End" See more »

Move Over Superman - Kenny is a True Hero
12 August 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

We saw an advanced screening of Kenny tonight.

It is hilariously funny, utterly charming and - at times - heart-breakingly honest. The quality of the script and dialogue is only surpassed by the acting.

Kenny is completely believable as a character and typifies the very best qualities of Australian culture, particularly that of the hard-working bloke, in my opinion. It's nice to watch a movie about a genuinely good guy.

Kenny is a hero who shows audiences that doing a hard job well, with justifiable pride, deserves respect - regardless of what the job entails.

Loved it.
