I have not laughed so a great deal in ages. It can be a actually ‘nice’ light comedy, and absolutely refreshing.

Some of the comedy films i observe only appear to be to maintain that ‘comedy’ effects for the very first viewing only and then they tumble into the standard bin of one trick ponies. However, i look to laugh for more time and louder each time i observe kenny and this to me displays the good quality of the acting and comedy through the film. Even although kenny’s enterprise and existence revolves all-around the ‘toilet’ trade there is definitely no shock or crassness developed into the movie, which some might have seen as an all far too quick to make a buck or two (bruno any person?).

Excellent film but insane rate for the dvd. Getting reported that it is this price tag with all suppliers. Shocked this film isn’t much better recognised and additional widespread.

This movie is just one of the funniest and quirkiest we have observed. With its relatively lavatorial humour it would make you giggle – staying a family created movie it would seem pretty the natural way acted.

The aussies do occur up with some great flicks and this is a basic, performed in the type of a documentary – terrific movie.

Kenny [2007] [DVD] : Brilliant film — funny, touching, unusual and i had never heard of it before someone sent me a copy.

Australian film earning at it is finest.

Shane jacobson was superb,a lol film. I would recommend this film to any person who likes a very good chuckle about the human bathroom patterns and so forth.

Kenny a extremely plausible character who attempts tough to do very well in his small position position but is continuously knocked back again.

A charming, gentle and affectionate movie.

This film was extremely funny acquired it for my dad for xmas. Had the total family in stitches. Perfectly well worth a check out if you like toilet humour.

Funny and hilarious, prompt support from provider.

One of the funniest movies in a long time , with a primary character who you really warm to , good humour and performances in this mockumentary , .

The feeling of humour in it is excellent.

Who knew there ended up so a lot of puns that could contain excrement?i beloved this movie from start to complete and by the end i felt like i understood him. I have so considerably empathy for this character, he is believable and provides so a lot normality which a large amount of movies lack.

A extremely funny movie with great deal of unforgettable a person liners. This man is a natural in a enterprise that is normal. For want of a better phrase this is a fly on the wall documentary with a variance. I savored this quite substantially, it can be genuine rest room humour.

Acquired this for my wife as she loves this mockumentary movie, shane jacobsen is an australian comedian who has produced this basic movie with some associates of his personal relatives. Kenny is a doing work class person who exhibits the existence of an aussie ”battler” just striving to get via his operate and household lifetime with as couple challenges as he can. But as often even even though he could see points in a apparent and straight forward way it can be the problems he faces with many others around him that can make lifetime a bit far more awkward. Well well worth obtaining a glimpse at for its tongue in cheek humour.

Dad owns a porter bathroom enterprise n it could have been him in the film brillant.

Genuinely humorous ,we viewed kenny with our son who life in aussie and we can have an understanding of why it is so common around there.

If this is your variety of film you will take pleasure in it. If your in the organization acquire a few recommendations on how it’s accomplished.

Viewed it on holiday in oz and had to have it to share with household and buddies.

  1. Bought this for my wife as she loves this mockumentary film, shane jacobsen is an australian comedian who has made this simple film with some members of his own family. Kenny is a working class man who shows the life of an aussie ”battler” just trying to get through his work and home life with as few issues as he can. But as always even though he might see things in a clear and straight forward way it’s the challenges he faces with others around him that makes life a bit more awkward. Well worth having a look at for its tongue in cheek humour.

    1. This is what “the office” might have been had it been remotely funny. This is a one trick pony, to be sure, but it relies upon the delicious, bumbling character that is kenny leading us through his life. And it has moments that are pretty heartwarmingly funny, along with others that are sad concerning his father. Overall, it’s actually a bit sluggish to watch in one pass, at least to me, but that doesn’t stop it being quite gently enjoyable. And there are a few scenes in the extras that really should have been in the release.

  10. This is a very good comedy which delicately balances several subtle themes. It is not a laugh a minute, working man/gross out type bonanza as you might be inclined to think from the cover and the toiletesque setting. Kenny as you will come to discover is a thoroughly decent human being. A big man in stature, with effected speech, divorced, living alone, a bully for a dad, a douche bag for a brother, a witch for an ex wife, a son he loves but who is at the stage where kids cease to communicate with their parents. In spite of his circumstances he remains calm, polite and reasonable, channeling his pent up aggression through boxing in order to provide exceptional service to the customers of “splashdown” a corporate bathroom provider of portable toilets to events. Throughout the film his cheery disposition wins you over, calmly batting off the trials and tribulations of life, managing to make a success of himself through his inherent goodness inspite of the obstacles that are put there to frustrate him. As i said previously the film is really subtle in spite of its rough exterior and provides lots of nice moments, the comedic language is very deft (and sometimes not “stupid as a bum full of smarties” i believe was the line) allowing your imagination to build the pictures for yourself, or showing conversations between characters where you can’t hear what they’re saying but it’s obvious from their facial expressions what’s going on. For example the screamish amongst us will be glad to know that while there is a lot of mentioning of poo, you never actually see any, leaving it all to your imagination. The scene where kenny is encouraging a trainee to put his hand down the unflushed toilet bowl in order to retrieve a lady customers jewellery, while explaining at the same time why he shouldn’t put on gloves (“you won’t be able to feel the thing, i guarantee it”) being one of the funniest in the film.

    I thought this would be more aussie humour (as we do tend to have a somewhat different sense of humour), but i had a dvd night with my friends (english, irish and french) and they all loved it).

    On the surface just a documentary/comedy, but there is an underlying message – you are judged on the trade you do and some of the script is quite poignant – very clever little film; initially i thought it was a real (think the office) documentary as i had not heard of the actor.

    I saw this at the cinema and decided to buy it for the family. The australian accent is rather difficult to understand, and the diction is not clear either, but if you can hear it, it’s a great film. We couldn’t believe kenny was an actor at first, it was so convincing. I’ll never take mobile loos for granted again.

    Kenny’s ex-wife thinks he’s going to hell; in his darker moments he suspects he may already be there. But whatever life throws at him, this decent australian everyman keeps his chin up and his humour intact and carries on calmly with his unmentionable trade. 100 minutes in kenny’s company is time well spent. Who knew a movie about portable loos could be so entertaining?.An odd, funny and weirdly uplifting film.

    Shamelessly overlooked when it was released in 2007, “kenny” is a wonderful mock documentary, about the trials and tribulations of australian plumber kenny smythe. Wonderfully played by shane jacobsen, kenny is a funny, hard-working, caring, and generous individual, who has a positive outlook on life, despite getting very little gratitude, from the public, that he serves. His choice of employment is also a source of embarrassment to members of his family. According to his father “your nothing but a glorified turd burglar”. But ultimately, kenny is the story of a man who is doing an important job in society, even if he is the only one who recognizes this. Despite the fact that toilets remain central to the film’s plot, kenny never descends into total crudeness. Just about every character in the film is either likeable or totally believable. Make a point of watching kenny, and you won’t regret it.

      1. Funny in some partsreally enjoyable and pleasingly surprising with some memorising bitskenny is unlike anything i’ve ever seen before,most of these sort of movies try to be too funny but this one is in brilliant form because its serious in parts and funny in other parts. Kenny will plumb more than just your toilet,he will plumb out laughter,happiness,silliness and a bundle of satisfying entertainment.
