Rango was released in theaters today, and so far the critical reception has been positive. However, it's not the first comedy based in a desert by a longshot - in fact, these barren stretches of Earth are actually fertile grounds for scenes that make us laugh. Here are some of the best comedic film moments in the desert.
"You ain't from around here, are you?" - Rango: The titular chameleon runs into a local named Beans, and helps himself to her father's ashes. Watch more Rango clips here
"Snakes and Sparklers" - Joe Dirt: A fireworks stand only sells snakes and sparklers. Joe givesthe owner a run-down of what he should be selling. I don't think I want to know what a "Whistling Bunghole" is. Watch more Joe Dirt clips here
