Us Rating: **1/2

Lonely pet chameleon Rango (voice of Johnny Depp) gets separated from his owners and lands in a desert town. Once in the wild, Rango teams up with a spunky frontier girl (Isla Fisher) and takes on a villainous rattlesnake (Bill Nighy). While Depp turns his bug-eyed reptile into a charismatic character, the plot gets lost in a maze of tangents and the story has too many tasteless jokes -- like a prostate gag -- that are not kid-friendly.
