Movie Info

To a stranger, he's a guy obsessed with toilets, but to those who know him, he's "Mr. Toilet," a crusader in global sanitation. Born in the Singapore slums, Jack Sim knows firsthand the agonies of not having a proper loo. Now, he's dedicating his life to a crisis no one dares talk about: Shit. Using humor as his main weapon, he plunges into his biggest challenge yet when he is asked to secure 6 million toilets for the "Clean India" initiative. But with few resources and no help from the government, his epic project and reputation are in jeopardy.

Critic Reviews for Mr. Toilet: The World's #2 Man

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

This soft-edged character study lacks distance. Sim is portrayed as a quixotic figure unconcerned with practicalities, and the film would have benefited from more details on meetings and debate within Sim's organization.

Enhanced by playful animations, this nicely composed documentary serves as an engagingly honest profile of a driven man and his prodigious movement.

Adheres to just about every convention of the unsung-hero-documentary genre, with testimonials from loved ones and experts alongside footage of him doing his utmost to solve a problem to which most of us have never given a second thought.

A valuable -- and often very funny -- social issue documentary.

For me, the issue of clean sanitation and access to it is absolutely something I took for granted. Mr. Toilet showed me how foolish that idea was.

Bathroom humour is rarely so effective.
