Continuity mistake: When Lovejoy and Jack are talking, Jack tucks his cigarette in his ear in an 11 o'clock position. A shot later it's in a 9 o'clock position and a bit of hair is covering his ear.

Continuity mistake: On the night of Rose's attempted suicide, we see her with a necklace on at the meal which disappears when she reaches the end of the ship. There was a deleted scene showing her removing it in her room, but without that it just vanishes. (00:35:00)

Revealing mistake: When Jack spreads the handcuffs over the pipe, we have a very clear close up shot of the links connecting the cuffs. In this shot you can see that the link nearest Jack's right hand is broken and not a complete link, therefore he should be able to separate the cuffs without going through the axe sequence.

Suggested correction: Maybe he didn't notice it?

Unlikely. Jack is seen trying to pull them apart. With the one link seriously weakened he would have had success earlier.

Visible crew/equipment: When Jack and Rose are running from Lovejoy, they stop for a moment on E deck. When they do, look behind them and a member of the ship's crew comes into shot holding a bag of something. When Jack and Rose start running again, this man has disappeared. (01:28:20)

Continuity mistake: When Rose leaves Jack's company to retrieve help, and goes to return with the axe, she stops at the stairway with the rising water and wedges the axe on the bars. The camera cuts to behind Rose to show her removing her outerwear, and the axe is still being held up by the bars but it's nice and straight, before and after this camera shot, the axe is propped in the bars crooked at an angle. (02:00:05)

Continuity mistake: About half an hour in when the rear of Titanic is shown, look at the very rear of the ship and you will see a red sign (near the triple screws) to the right of an over-hanging light. Shortly afterwards when Rose approaches the rear of the ship to jump off, the sign has now moved to the other side of the light. (00:31:50 - 00:36:15)

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)

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)

Continuity mistake: We see the plates sliding out of the holder and smashing as the ship starts to go vertical. Then 50 seconds later we see more plates falling from the same holder. However, the positions of the plates have changed and there are stacks of plates in sections that were empty. (02:30:10 - 02:31:00)

Factual error: The lake that Jack told Rose he went ice fishing on when she was threatening to jump is Lake Wissota, a man-made lake in Wisconsin near Chippewa Falls (where Jack grew up). The lake was only filled with water in 1918 when a power company built a dam on the Chippewa River, six years after the Titanic sank. (00:39:05)
