On Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating to reviews, the film has a weighted average score of 81 out of 100, based on 48 critics, indicating “universal acclaim.” Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of “A+” on an A+ to F scale, one of fewer than 80 films in the history of the service to receive such a score; it was also the sixth Pixar film to earn the rating – the previous being Up in 2009. It also earned a 95% positive score, including a rare five-out-of-five stars, from comScore, along with a 76% “definite recommend”.

Matt Zoller Seitz of gave the film four out of four stars, writing that “There’s a touch of Japanese master Hayao Miyazaki in the film’s matter-of-fact depiction of the dead interacting with the living, as well as its portrayal of certain creatures” such as Dante and Pepita. He concluded his review by stating, “I had some minor quibbles about [Coco] while I was watching it, but I can’t remember what they were. This film is a classic.”
