Corrected entry: After Hector plays for ChicharrĂ³n he drinks a shot of tequila, it should fall through his skeleton and hit the floor, but doesn't.


Correction: The skeletons are also able to move and talk without muscles, tendons, or tongues and they have hair, eyes, and mustaches. We even see some eat at the party and one guy blew fire (which requires spitting out alcohol from your mouth). There's no reason to think a drink would spill out when they're able to do all these other things.


Corrected entry: Frida's costume was in custody in the security office, so Hector couldn't use it to get in to the de la Cruz party.


Correction: Ceci had 39 other Frida costumes that he could have taken (she says she has 40 Fridas to dress and thanks to him, she's one dress short.) It should be noted Frida Kahlo was the famous artist that was putting on the show and not the person Hector borrowed the costume from.


Correction: Given that Frida likes Miguel for helping her, she could have been convinced to give Hector the costume to help him.

Corrected entry: Ernesto de la Cruz was exposed in the afterlife as a fraud, but the movie went on as if he was also exposed in the current present life too. The boy could have mentioned it, but would he really have been taken serious on the subject there? Ernesto would have gone on and been idolized in the real world, unfortunately.


Correction: It's mentioned in the movie that Coco's letters from her father contained all of the songs Ernesto put forth as his own, proving he stole the songs.

Jason Hoffman

I'm sorry. That wouldn't prove anything to anyone other than Coco and maybe the family directly.

Nevertheless, that's the explanation given in the film. It's been a year. More than enough time for them to investigate the letters.

Jason Hoffman

To add a bit more to the above explanation... Ernesto de la Cruz would likely have fabricated a back story to support his claim of authorship of the songs, which the letters to CoCo would have refuted, leading to scrutiny of the author.
