In the Book In the Movie
   The dwarves are sealed inside barrels as they escape from the Elven King's Hall by floating down the river. They arrive at Lake Town where Bilbo opens the barrels to release them. They are not sealed, but ride down the river with their heads sticking out.
   The dwarves never saw the dragon, but heard him in the mountain and saw his flames as they dashed into the secret tunnel to hide. The dwarves battle the dragon in the mountain and Thorin even stands on his head.
   The dwarves crossed a river in Mirkwood that Beorn warned them not to drink from and Bombur fell in. They didn't cross any rivers in Mirkwood.
   Bilbo didn't find the Arkenstone until after the dragon was killed. Bilbo finds the Arkenstone on his first trip.
   Bard doesn't enter the story until after Smaug leaves the mountain. Bard and his children aid the dwarves and tend the wounded.
