It doesn't matter how they fit on the door. It matters how much they way or how they balance. Jack and Rose could've just been secretly really fat or have no balance at all.

no jack could not have survived because without a sad ending the movie wouldn't be as dramatic

“Jack didn’t have to die!” Well so did 1500 others! Had Jack not died, I think the audience wouldn’t have connected to the tragedy and loss as well as if he had survived, because we come to know and lose him, rather than just a person you see and lose. Great job mythbusters though!

Nah. Jack would’ve made it if Rose had stayed on the damn life boat to begin with! Kid was a survivor on his own, and his chances would’ve been greater had he been watching his back and not both of theirs.

Yeah, Jack could've tied a lifejacket under, but the water was also freezing cold. It would kill you in a matter of minutes, especially if you were thrashing around in cold water like most of the passengers were.

Jack was written in the script to die. Maybe they should've made the door smaller so people wouldn't go around making up theories

truth be told, the idea that jack could had fit on the door is plausible, and I totally agree that he could have lived. but unfortunately, jack's fate isn't up to a piece of wood, its up to the writer. James Camron wrote the story as how he envisioned it. and apparently he wanted to write a "tragic love story". after all, it all takes place on a tragic ship. honestly, I think he debated whether or not to kill off jack in the story as he was writing it. he repeatedly put jack in life threatening situations were he could die but decided it wasn't the right time. he wanted jack's death to be as sad and tragic as possible, wanting the audience to fall in love with the character so the impact of his death would effect the audience on a deep level. the titanic was a tragic accident that took many lives, I believe James Camron was trying to show just how real and heart breaking the event was.               so "could jack have fit on he door"? yes "could he have survived"? yes. but its not how James Camron wanted to write his story.                   I don't like that jack died, but its not up to me or anyone else. does it make James Camron a bad person for it? NO. death happens, in real life and in stories, but think about it, if no one ever died in a story, it wouldn't be much of a story, it would make it too predictable and no one would be worried that the character might die. unsuspected and tragic deaths add in surprising plot twists that the audience won't expect. that's my view on this debate.

If you were about to freeze to death and sink to the bottom of the ocean and you're so cold all you can do is shake would you think to put your life vests under a door to you and your friend can live in situations like that I can barely breath let alone build a floating device
Also why did jack not let rose stay on the board and use the life jacket himself. Even that would’ve been better than nothing

Number one it's a movie, number two it's what a man is supposed to do sacrifice his life for the woman he loves. Her life was no more or less than his. He choose to give his life for hers. I just wish more ppl understood this.

But no one considers the mental health of jack and rose, you’d expect a unsinkable ship and when it’s pitch black, freezing cold, and your about to sink, can you really keep so calm and think about have to take off your life vest and attack it to the door with a 4 minute max while rose is on it, honestly people, be more logical

As jack said before... "Water that cold, it hits you like a thousand knives stabbing you all over your body.. You can't breathe. You can't think. At least, not about anything but the pain...". That's why you could never think properly if your in the place of Jack in that night because of the cold.

It wasn't a door, it was a piece of wall above the door to the first class lounge.  That part of the ship was forward of the breakup area.  It was probably torn from the wall by gushing water, and then came out when the ship broke in half.
