This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   The writer meets Pi's family before he hears about Pi's time on the boat with Richard Parker. After Pi has finished his entire story, the writer meets his wife and children.
   He puts a note in a wine bottle he found in a floating fridge. Pi writes a note and puts in in a can of water and throws it into the water.
   Pi stands up and goes to the board and renames himself Pi and also adds on the chalkboard n=3.14. The students all catch on and start chanting 3.14 along with him at each class. Pi writes the entire sequence of Pi on the board while the entire school gathers and cheers. A teacher grabs a book and verifies that he has memorized the entire sequence.
   This doesn't happen. When Richard Parker jumps overboard to chase the fish, Pi jumps onto the boat and removes the floor boards and uses them to make the raft much bigger and stronger.
   Pi is so hungry that he tries to eat Richard Parker's feces. He doesn't.
