Suggested correction: As they go into the water, Rose is wearing small light coloured heels. Due to the lighting it appears she is barefoot.

Revealing mistake: When Jack and Rose are talking at the bow of the ship before the "I'm flying" part, if you look at the windows behind them you can tell it is a painted prop area and not a real ship.

Other mistake: After Jack and Rose are "done" in the cargo hold, they come out onto the bow of the ship laughing. Whilst the door they used to get onto the bow does lead to the cargo hold, inside you have to go down a flight of stairs and are greeted by a cast iron hydraulic door which can't be opened from inside the cargo hold, and would close automatically if the control wheel wasn't being held. The only way they would have been able to get out is by running back through the boiler rooms.

Continuity mistake: When Jack and Rose are being carried towards the locked gate by the water, we see the water and Rose hit the gate in the first long shot and then the camera changes to a close angle of the gate and Rose and the water have not reached the gate yet. (02:15:30)

Revealing mistake: You need to watch carefully for this as it's tricky to spot, but it is visible without the need of slow motion. When the steward calls for the gate to be unlocked to the third class passengers, the gate is already open and just pushed to a close. You can see the gate wobbling and separating around the lock area. Also as the gate is unlocked we see a key being pressed against the lock to unlock it. However the key doesn't actually engage with the lock, making it impossible to open it. (02:02:50)

Continuity mistake: When we see Rose at the start she says she doesn't know what all the fuss is about. As she says this she has her hand on her hat, but after the angle changes it isn't. (00:21:15)

Audio problem: In the poker scene, when Jack picks up a card from the deck, it makes a very loud and long noise. Much louder and longer than the movement of the card against the deck would justify. (00:23:15)

Jacob La Cour

Revealing mistake: When the boat is totally slanted sideways and Rose encounters Andrews, note the glasses and stuff over the fireplace and behind Rose. They don't slide downwards or move a single inch, defying the law of gravity, revealing the camera trick. (02:21:00)

Factual error: During the sinking scene, Murdoch looks down the crew stairs on the starboard side, where water is entering from an open door on deck A. That door should have faced outward (starboard side) otherwise the door would have lead into cabin A7 and I don't think the occupant would have enjoyed that.

Continuity mistake: Cal checks his pocket watch when getting ready to board the Titanic. In one shot he has his walking stick raised. In the next shot it has vanished completely. (00:21:50)

Continuity mistake: After Rose breaks Jack's handcuffs they join some sailors to ram down a gate. A frame later, from the opposite angle, the gate's position is totally different. (02:03:10)

Suggested correction: You see Fabrizio stand the gate up to make it easier for people to get past.

Continuity mistake: Rose is attempting to commit suicide and tells Jack to leave. When he says "No", his hair swaps from being all over his face to neatly combed, between shots. (00:38:15)

Continuity mistake: When Jack is manacled in the master at arms' cabin as it floods, the drawers from the left-hand side of the desk behind him are floating around in the water, then for a short shot are back in the desk and then floating around in the water again.

Continuity mistake: When Rose is hanging off the back of ship she first isn't holding the train of her gown then suddenly she is.

Visible crew/equipment: When old Rose is traveling in the helicopter at the beginning of the movie, the skids of the filming helicopter can be seen reflected in the window of the one Rose is in. (00:13:02)

Factual error: In the seen after the preacher finishes his dialogue; it shows the woman floating in the first class lounge with which is completely under water. But about a minute or so later after it shows the maid slide down the deck, the part of lounge that was supposed to be flooded is still above water. The lounge in just a bit forward of the 3rd funnel on A Deck which wasn't submerged until after the break up in the film. The light fixture is one deck down aft of the compass tower between funnel 2 and 3.

Factual error: When Rose's mother is having tea, all the women are wearing gloves as they have tea. This would never have happened as Edwardian ladies always removed their gloves and placed them in their laps under their napkins when they sat at a table, before eating or drinking anything so as not to soil them.

Continuity mistake: After Old Rose watches the taped images of the sunken Titanic, Lizzy puts her hand on her shoulder. Then she takes it off and moves away. When the angle changes her hand is still on Rose.

Continuity mistake: When old Rose grabs the dragonfly jewel she places her left finger under the broken wing. When the angle changes her finger is away and she is repeating the previous movement.

Cal Hockley: You're going to him? To be a whore to a gutter rat?!
Rose: I'd rather be his whore than your wife.

Chosen answer: During the several years it took to construct the ship probably, or in any of the supplies/food brought on board, or in the furniture brought on board. A single pregnant female rat can be responsible for thousands of rats in a very short space of time (the offspring are not too choosy about who they breed with).

Soylent Purple

A pregnant female rat could have made a home in a underneath a third class couch and had the other rats then all the females would have baby rats quickly.

Answer: In addition to the other answers, rats can easily get on ships by climbing the mooring lines that tie vessels to the dock and also go up unattended gangways. They can also use temporary overhead cables attached to ships while in port.
