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 ... Written by
_Kenny (2006)_ is quite unusual in that almost all of the events, companies and products referenced in the film are actually real. Kenny's company Splashdown is a preexisting business that inspired creation of the film, and cooperated in its production. In scenes involving a boxing club, not only is the club real, but so too is the sponsor on the boxers' shirts and the background signage. Likewise, the airshow and race meet are actual events, and the track does really have its own chapel. The Pumper and Cleaner Environmental Expo International exists just as shown, and the magazines, companies, and products shown at the show weren't creations for the film. Even the locations and the distances between them are, for the most part, as represented. See more »
When Kenny takes off from Australia he is aboard a Airbus 380-300 aircraft, and when the plane finally lands he is aboard a Boeing 767. This plane is also landing at Melbourne Airport, not the USA. See more »

Kenny is the funniest, sweetest and most clever Aussie comedy since Priscilla Queen of the Desert and Muriel's Wedding. It is bitter sweet in t he style of both Priscilla Queen of the Desert and Muriel's Wedding. Want to laugh like hell and feel for the character of Kenny then watch Kenny. My elderly Mother did not realize that Kenny was a mockumentary until near the end of the film. She thought it was a straight documentary - bless her cotton socks. I am a New Zealander and Aussie culture is very near our culture but I am sure if you are American or British or Mongolian you will enjoy Kenny. Really so go on and watch, fast.
