Paramount has released a three-minute clip from the upcoming animated film Rango. The clip doesn’t do a great job of highlighting the film’s clever and goofy humor and instead relies more on slapstick, a chase sequence that works better on a big screen than your computer’s monitor, and a bathroom joke. I caught the movie last weekend and it’s a lot of fun and this clip doesn’t really do it justice.
Hit the jump to check out the clip, but don’t be put off if it doesn’t do anything for you. Rango features the voices of Johnny Depp, Isla Fisher, Abigail Breslin, Ned Beatty, and Bill Nighy. It opens March 4th.

Rango is a sheltered chameleon living as an ordinary family pet facing a major identity crisis. After all, how high can you aim when your whole purpose in life is to blend in? When Rango accidentally winds up in the gritty, gun-slinging town of Dirt — a lawless outpost populated by the desert’s most wily and whimsical creatures — the less-than-courageous lizard suddenly finds he stands out. Welcomed as the last hope the town has been waiting for, new Sheriff Rango is forced to play his new role to the hilt… until he starts to become the hero he once only pretended to be.
