Other mistake: When Hector is singing to his forgotten friend, he takes a drink and the drink doesn't exit his body...where does the liquid go?

Suggested correction: It is safe to say this film chose for the laws in the land of the dead to not be followed the same way they are with the living. While it is scientifically correct that the liquid should go somewhere; if we get that technical the film would be a mistake in its entirety as the skeletons should not be able to talk, walk, or drink at all without muscles and other organs. When the entire nature of the film is fantasy, artistic license allows suspension of the laws of real life science.

Other mistake: Miguel was drowning in the swimming pool in De La Cruz's party but when he was thrown in the pit he managed to swim out of it.

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.
