The Australian Jacobson brothers may have produced a first: a heart-warming comedy about shit-disposal. Shane Jacobson is superb as Kenny, who says he's a plumber but actually installs mobile loos. It's in his dealing with life's other crap – a cantankerous father, mean ex-wife, useless colleagues – that we see the mark of this stoical, kindly, childlike man. Clayton Jacobson handles the mockumentary form splendidly, and the Aussie lavatory humour never overpowers the slyly funny observation and characterisation. Hugely endearing.
