This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Harry sees the Grim watching him from the stands during the match. He sees a cloud shaped like the Grim when he is flying on his broom.
   Harry gets the Firebolt for Christmas. He gets it at the end of the film.
   Ron and Harry get into a big fight with Hermione about the Firebolt and Scabbers. There isn't a big fight. Ron argues a little with Hermione.
   On two separate occasions, Harry goes to Hogsmeade. He only goes once.
   On one trip to Hogsmeade, Harry throws balls of mud at Draco and his friends under cover of the Invisibility cloak. The one trip he takes is during the winter, so he throws snowballs instead.

The origin of the Marauder's Map isn't really explained though. I watched the movie in the theater with my father who hadn't read the book, and I had to spend much of the car ride home explaining the backstory to him.

It's true. They show it to him and explains how it works.

In the movie Harry does learn about the Marauder's map from Fred and George.
