Coco hits all the right notes but still feels like the same old song

The children... behaved, entertained by it all -- the story and the songs. Me? Not so much.

Being Pixar, the picture looks wonderful - lighting cinematographer Danielle Fienberg has outshone herself - but in the end, the derivative Coco lacks the spark of life found in The Book of Life.

The movie slips into a familiar rut and the scenery fades into the background.
October 21, 2017
With a fetching soundtrack and an array of visual delights in search of a comparably imaginative narrative, "Coco" is sweet and sentimental without being particularly engaging.

Coco makes sure to cross every item off its Mexican checklist -- tamales, sombreros, a shot of what looks like tequila -- but that's not the same as immersing us in a culture.

In the end, it's all too much, yet at the same time not enough. Despite its efforts, Coco can't rise above mid-tier Pixar.

I left Coco angry that its entire plot needn't have happened if the family had ever once acted reasonably or communicated properly.

Disney-Pixar's Coco was more enjoyable three years ago when it was titled The Book of Life and came from Twentieth Century Fox.

Both a respectful tribute to Mexican culture and a grin-inducing, thematically powerful and intensely gorgeous adventure, Coco really is magical.

The storyline and Miguel's journey through it allows for what's effectively a walking tour of Mexico's lasting contributions to art, music, movies sports and pop-culture in a way that feels genuine and "lived."

Once again, Pixar has delivered an enchanting tale with Coco that features everything that makes Pixar great - it has ample heart, plenty of jokes for adults and children, and groundbreaking visuals unlike anything I've ever seen before.

After a swarm of money-grabbing sequels, it's decidedly wonderful to see Pixar returning to their core roots of delivering refreshing and original pieces of cinema.

Original, fun, heartfelt and worth multiple viewings. A true return to form for Pixar. I may need another box of Kleenex.

Coco may very well be my favorite Pixar film to date. But how does it not pass the Bechdel Test??

...it's steeped in familiar, if not comforting, tropes.

Thankfully, the final product is a wholesome love letter to a beloved occasion, which tugs at your heart strings just like a Mariachi's guitarrón.

This is a warm-hearted movie that probes deeper into the meaning of family and independence. It dives into Mexican culture with much gusto and joyous music, but its story has a universal power.
August 29, 2018
Unkrich's 2nd feature proves that with great animation, stellar storytelling, and moving moments of emotion, animated movies are still the best forms of filmmaking out there.
