Continuity mistake: When they jump in the pool, they drop the guitar. When they jump out their guitar is no longer in the pool.
Directed by: Lee Unkrich, Adrian Molina
Starring: Benjamin Bratt, Gael Garcia Bernal, Edward James Olmos, Alanna Ubach
Other mistake: When Miguel is singing "Un poco loco" on stage, he goes out of range of the mic, but his voice is amplified.
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.
Trivia: The Pizza Planet truck from "Toy Story" passes by Miguel's house near the beginning of the film. Also in the marketplace, a small Nemo doll is on a table and dolls of Mike Wazowski and Woody are hanging from a stall.
Trivia: The number A-113 can be seen in Ernesto de la Cruz's album, often referenced by animators.
Clerk: I am terribly allergic.
Miguel: But Dante doesn't have any hair.
Clerk: And I don't have a nose, and yet, here we are.
Héctor: What are you doing?
Miguel: I'm walking like a skeleton.
Héctor: No, skeletons don't walk like that.
Miguel: That's how you walk.
Héctor: No, I don't.
Ernesto de la Cruz: I have to sing. It's not just in me. It is me.
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.
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.
Question: After Chicharrón is forgotten and disappears, where does he go?
Answer: No one really knows, perhaps the 'true' afterlife, though that is entirely speculation.

Answer: It is never really explained in the movie, but we could assume that whenever someone dies they keep whatever items they had on them. Hector may have had the photo on his person when he died.
