Great family movie. The storyline was fantastic and the twist along the way. The ultimate message about how family is the most important thing but the lesson that things aren't like they always appear. I believe this should be a new instant family classic!

This movie deserves every bit of hype that it got when it was released. I loved the themes of family and music throughout the movie.

Yes, this is a good movie, with excellent animation. Pixar has done an outstanding job with this one. Lot's of fun.

I didn't care for it much at all. I'm not a fan of Pixar in general but the storyline was kind of cute. I fell asleep shortly after I turned it on.

A beautifully animated, magical and heartwarming story. I could watch this one over and over again.

What a delight for the eyes. The animation was so joyous, so much to take in. I'd easily see this again later on. I was not familiar with dia de muertos until the recent past and now love the idea of setting up a memorial for those loved ones that have died. it's a great way to remember the love and adventures we shared all together, so to speak, within a certain time period. I will decorate some headstones with marigolds, su memoria es la luz que nos guia.

Balance of engaging story, deep message, visuals, and music. The best animated feature in my memory.

Coco is a visual and auditory masterpiece. I only wish I could have viewed this on the big screen.

A Pixar classic in the making!

I thought that the disc was defective, because it kept freezing up then continuing. After I got the second disc, it also kept freezing then continuing. I decided to test it on my DVD player connected to my television. It worked correctly, proving that my computer has a problem.

This was an excellent movie with a plot twist at the end that caught me off-guard. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone, youth to adult.

Many quotes in IMDb already and thanks to those contributors. Here is my favorite and an unexpected jargon from mijo to papi:

Miguel: [to Héctor] A minute ago I thought I was related to a murderer! You're a total upgrade!
[Héctor gives Miguel an annoyed look]

Apr 25, 2018

Héctor: [sings] Remember me, though I have to say goodbye / Remember me, don't let it make you cry / For even if I'm far away, I hold you in my heart / I sing a secret song to you, each night we are apart / Remember me, though I have to travel far / Remember me, each time you hear a sad guitar / Know that I'm with you, the only way that I can be / Until you're in my arms again, remember me...
