Critic Reviews for Coco

All Critics (304) | Top Critics (45)

Of every Pixar film that deals with family, memory, and loss, ask, "Is there sufficient reason for the tears that will inevitably run down my face by the end?" Yes, thanks in no small part to the ingenious use of De La Cruz's hit song, "Remember Me."

Does Coco rise to the heights of Pixar's very best work? No. But it is a generous, heartfelt film, full of color and music, one that offers a timely Thanksgiving tribute to the intergenerational importance of family.

None of Coco's few flaws can fatally undermine the film because it is, most of all, a smart and enduring piece of storytelling with a satisfyingly twisting narrative and richly complex theme.

This engaging Pixar animation plays magnificently with elements of Mexican folklore and fine art.

Audience Reviews for Coco

This may actually be PIxar's least funny film, but that's beside the point. It actually succeeds in everything it sets out to do: tell a beautifully animated and deeply touching story while paying respect to a fascinating Mexican tradition. The visuals are breath-taking and the story so sweet, you have to admire that the film somewhat holds back on the usual slapstick and sticks to its very humane message. Adorable and a feast for all senses!

With a silly slapstick humor and pedestrian jokes that scream Disney much more than Pixar, Coco may look stunning but is a disappointment, resorting to too many clichés and predictable twists that you can see from miles away while never managing to even justify its title.

People can be very sentimental when it comes to Pixar's early work, especially when comparing it to their recent stuff, but I'm not, which is why I can say confidently that Coco is the best movie Pixar has ever made. The animation and colors are beautiful, the exploration of culture is done well, and the narrative of death in a kid's movie is handled perfectly. Above all of that, however, is this film's incredibly creative and well thought out story. It's funny, clever, and equally as immersive as the visual spectacle that this film is.
