Continuity mistake: When Rango was at the mayor's office, the mayor grabs out a jug of water, and he opens the lid. But in the next shot, the lid is sealed again.

Other mistake: When Rango is loading his revolver during the stand-off, he loads the bullets on the right of the revolver, however, the chamber is hanging from the left of the revolver.


Continuity mistake: In the scene where the passing truck blows Rango off the armadillo, he gets caught by a mud flap. (This is in the exact area where it was so hot, that the water from his glass dries up in seconds and his drink umbrella goes up in flames). But while he is stuck on the flap, he gets hit with a big juicy blast of watery mud off the road.

More quotes from Rango

Question: What was that thing with the big eye Rango and his posse were walking by?

Answer: TV Tropes mentions that the big eye might be an enormous alligator, because alligators are known to live in sewers.

Answer: I think the big eye might be an allusion to Wyrm, the villain from a popular novel.

Question: Why didn't Roadkill the armadillo die by getting run over, and how did he put himself back together?

New this month Answer: The movie is supposed to be surreal. There is no explanation given.


Question: Why did Rango's eyes never work independently from each other like a normal Chameleon? I think it would have added a bit more humour to the movie.


Chosen answer: For the same reason he can talk and wear clothes: To make him identifiable to the audience, especially kids. Independently working eyes would have been funny, but would work best as a side or supporting character than the main character. It's important for the audience to identify with the hero, so they make him as human as they need to.
