Kenny is a 2006 Australian Mockumentary film starring Shane Jacobson as Kenny Smyth, a Melbourne plumber who works for corporate bathroom rental company Splashdown

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".

Kenny contains examples of:

  • Excrement Statement: As he is about to drive away in his septic tank truck after a long and exhausting day, Kenny's way is blocked by a luxury car whose driver insensitively brushes off his requests to move. Kenny breaks his longstandng habit of amiability to fill the man's car with human waste.
  • Grew a Spine: At the end of the film, as he is about to drive away in his septic tank truck after a long and exhausting day, Kenny's way is blocked by a luxury car whose driver insensitively brushes off his requests to move. Kenny breaks his longstandng habit of amiability to fill the man's car with human waste, a suggestion that perhaps Kenny has decided to stick up for himself a little bit more.
  • Grumpy Old Man: Kenny's father.
  • Mockumentary
  • One-Word Title
  • Parking Payback: At the end of the movie, Kenny gets parked in by a yuppie who double parks his convertible next to Kenny's truck. Kenny fills the car with raw sewage from the truck's tank.

  • Protagonist Title
  • Toilet Humour: Pretty much unavoidable given the film's subject matter.
