Had to babysit all four kids - three nephews & a niece - this afternoon, so, of course my solution is to take 'em to a movie.

Since it's a small college town & Rango was the only new show playin' on six screens, I had to buy the tickets three hours early. And all three of today's screenings sold out.

Good for them, I suppose.

As for the movie, I liked it. Its an honest Western more than anything else. Stranger rolls into town, becomes sheriff & solves the town's problems through sheer luck & some skill.

I thought the main villian, Rattlesnake Jake, was a little too scary for the kids, but they all seemed to like him, talkin' about how awesome he was...

I was disappointed with the voice for the Spirit of the West, too.

Really good animation, a few curse words, and a reference to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas...go figure.
