This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   The lifeboat has a locker at the front that contains all the survival supplies. The locker opens and creates a barrier between Pi and Richard. There is a canvas bag in the front of the boat that contains the supplies. Richard Parker is very close.
   Pi finds the water but can't open it because he doesn't have a can opener. He eventually opens the can using the tarpaulin hooks. The cans have pop tops that Pi easily rips open.
   Pi drinks four cans of water and throws the empty tins into the ocean. Pi drinks the water but drops the cans onto his raft for safekeeping.
   Pi comes across another castaway. They are both blind and they talk for a while. Pi believes he is talking to Richard Parker but is confused by the french accent. Eventually the Frenchman jumps on the boat and wants to kill Pi, but Richard Parker jumps out and kills him. This doesn't happen.
   Pi eats some of the frenchman's flesh and uses it for bait. He later confesses to eating some of the Chinese sailor. He never says that he ate any human flesh.
