You have to consider the weight of the two of them, and also the fact that they had just been dumped into freezing cold water. The water may have been calm, but it was still cold. This means your limbs would've essentially "shut down" to conserve heat for your vital organs, like your heart and lungs. This means your fingers, arms, legs.....wouldn't have been as efficient for crawling onto the board or helping it to stabilize because of the water temp. These guys were obviously in warmer water, and so had the ability to move the board around and crawl. You wouldn't have seen that in the water temp of the north Atlantic.

Even if they both couldn't fit on the door, Jack couldn't have found something else to float on amongst ALL the debris??!

why didnt the rose lay on the door sideways, the shear determination to live and to save jack should atleast give rose a little strength to lift her head up🤔🤔🤔🤔, and freezing feet are the least of your problems

Jack is poorer than Rose, he wouldn't have had a huge jacket or lots of layers and no life jacket. Rose would've had the better chance of survival anyways, plus, where are they going to find a hammer and nails in the middle of the ocean?

I wondered why they didn't share the piece of wood. I mean it would of made their chances of survival better if they huddled together.

Well if Jack didn't die the movie would've gotten less attention, fame, and viewers. Besides, people love a movie with drama and love.
Antonio Marino
'Antonio Marino' 1 week ago
Yes, they both could have been on that. But you got to remember their losing their minds after the "Unsinkable" ship just sunk, you need to add in the human factor to this, that being panicking, scared, freezing, and being desperate to live.

Come on guys. The movie would be super boring if jack had lived. What about the part where they reunite at the end on the titanic.? That scene is a masterpiece. That scene wouldn't have existed if jack had lived.

'kmarshirley' 1 week ago
What if Jack was actually sleeping at the end and would've lived if she had kept her promise not to let go. I mean she didn't try that hard to check if he was alive. I think, been a while since I've seen it, that the rescue boat was looking around and that's when she realized he was dead, screamed his name a few times, then tossed him into the ocean. Then I think she blew the whistle a bunch and said over here. What if he was sleeping and she just drowned him.

How did they find the right exact size of it so rose is not selfish jack just loved her I do not believe it he wanted her to not even have a. Chance of dieing so my question is "is that the right size or did they just say it was "?!
Justin Driscoll
'Justin Driscoll' 1 week ago
Jack and Rose were in freezing water. They also had been on the ship that was sinking and the air was also... fucking cold. So they had already been very cold for about 2 and a half hours before going into the even colder water. At that point your brain isn't functioning well enough to think of the mechanics to get the both of you on the board. He tried once and it didn't work. He didn't want her to have to go back into the water again.

In Jack and Rose's defense, they were exhausted and in an extremely traumatic situation. There's no way they were able to think clearly enough to try and carefully distribute weight. Also, the life jacket added warmth. Would they really take that off just so they could float better? Would they even think to do that? Also, like I already said, there's no way they weren't exhausted at this point.

But also don't forget that they were freezing and that the water was freezing cold as well and their muscles became more stiff so it wouldn't have been as easy to get on

Well in my class of physics with an estimated weight of Jack, Rose and the door (and the material of the it) we calculated they could have stayed together in that door without it drowning.
Tina Wright

Ok since Rose was on the door why didn't she take off the life jacket so Jack could wear it at least

Omg this is soooo annoying bc it wasn't about the space it was that if they both got on to it the door would have s a n k

It's scary to think that all the people floating in the water after the wreck were floating atop a depth of over 2 miles of water. In the middle of nowhere. I'd just let myself die. Fuck that.
Massie Block
'Massie Block' 2 weeks ago
If jack had made it on that wood and lived, that would have changed my life. Basically, my heart sank with him. Now I feel like Rose is responsible for his death in all ways. First, because she was doubted and thought that Jack really stole the necklace the reason why he had to be chained at the time that titanic was sinking. Two, she was offered to ride on the mini boat but she jumped back off. Third, because of that she triggered the anger of her fiance and he went trying to shoot jack. Fourth, she got the peice of wood all for herself bec. they wouldnt fit.

One thing I don't get is this: they did not just sink with a ship on the sea in freezing cold water. And they are not in shock and no one is trying to fight for that board.

Well if Jack didn't die in the movie, 1 million dollars less would have been made.

What he said. it was 1912. There was no cheap plywood. "11taco Takeout9 hours ago - mahogany is heavier then plywood, that could also be a factor to why they both could not stay afloat and if it was in one piece."
