Titanic - Warm Water in the Ship?
Jack and Rose spend a fair amount of time below decks, as the rising water floods the ship. That water is ocean water, so it shouid be just a few degrees above freezing, at best. But there is no indication at all that they're in brutally cold water.
Additionally, given the lightweight clothes they were wearing, they should have been shivering cold and looking like they just spend 15 minutes immersed in freezing cold water.
This is the most glaring goof that I see when I watch the film-it is so obvious.

I have seen the making of this movie a million times and I can tell you that the water used was VERY cold. Those scenes were taped in short bursts over a long period of time because they had to keep coming out of the water.

The first part of the ship to flood would have been the boiler rooms, and these would have passed a lot of heat energy into the flood water, also the fabric of the ship would be warm, and this would also add to the temperature of the water. The water inside the ship would therefore be several degrees warmer than the ocean water outside.

It isn't outrageous. And it isn't a slip up. If you watch the movie, you will see how hard Rose is shivering and how blue both Rose's and Jack's lips are-due to the severe cold temperature of the water. Both of their faces are also pretty pale, again due to the coldness of the water. And besides, it's just a movie. We all want it as real looking as possible, but we don't want to kill the actors who are playing the parts. If the directors made the water too cold for Leo and Kate, they both could of gotten hypothermia! Think about that before you criticize!

It seemed to me that Rose was in severe discomfort in the water.
