Critic Consensus: Coco's rich visual pleasures are matched by a thoughtful narrative that takes a family-friendly -- and deeply affecting -- approach to questions of culture, family, life, and death.

Critic Reviews for Coco
An unexpectedly brilliant and dynamic story about lineage, connection, and self-discovery.
In a country with an ever increasing Hispanic and Mexican population, a film like Coco should have come around a long time ago.
Several times I found myself sobbing without knowing exactly why only to realize why the scene had hit me so hard a few minutes later.
A wonderful return to form for Pixar, who again deliver the emotional and creative goods while exploring other cultures with a genuine, tangible, love and respect.
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.
