Miguel's exchange with the Clerk about him being allergic to Dante ("But Dante doesn't have any hair!" "And I don't have a nose, and yet here we are.") echoes Bob Parr's dialogue with Edna Mode in The Incredibles (2004): ("You know I'm retired from hero work." "As am I, Robert, yet here we are.")

I'm no critic, but Coco is close to movie perfection. It definitely deserved the Oscar for Best Animated Feature, no doubt, and is by far the best animated movie ever created. The visuals are stunning, the characters are fantastic, the twist is somewhat predictable but still great, and the story is so touching. This is the best film I have ever seen, over Shawshank, over The Godfather, over The Matrix; this film is a godlike creation from the very, very best of cinema. Do not be fooled by the haters who say it is a poor portrayal of a tradition; the tradition is likely far more beautiful in Coco than in real life. Fantastic, I am blown away.
