Continuity mistake: When Mama Imelda is singing on the stage and in the shot where she runs towards Miguel and Héctor, you can see several security guards on the stage attempting to apprehend her. However in the next shot that shows Ernesto grabbing her hand, there are no security guards visible. Three of them reappear briefly (the shot lasts about a second but you can see them) but they disappear for the rest of the scene. (01:23:05)

Continuity mistake: Miguel is thrown into the pit and lands in water, being completely submerged. But a couple minutes later when Hector mentions Coco, Miguel pulls the family picture out of his pocket, and the picture is totally dry and showing no effects of being submerged.

Other mistake: In the scene of Miguel and Hector on the rocks at the bottom of the huge sinkhole, Hector's left foot has six toes.

Question: Why didn't the aunts just tell Miguel that Ernesto De La Cruz wasn't his grandfather when Miguel was rambling about it when he entered the Land of the Dead?

Answer: The aunts may not actually know. Because his ancestor hated him so much, she may have talked about him very little in both the real world and the afterlife.

Greg Dwyer

Answer: Because Miguel didn't unambiguously talk about his wrong assumption. In other words, he never said, "my grand-grandfather and Imelda's husband, Ernesto de la Cruz" (which is wrong). He only called him grand-grandfather and Imelda simply referred to him as a good-for-nothing musician. The aunts, uncles and the grandfather Julio all knew about Hector, as can be inferred from the reunion scene.
