This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   It took the dwarves over a week from when they left Laketown until they found the secret entrance to the Lonely Mountain. It took the dwarves one day to get from Laketown to the mountain and find the secret entrance.
   The secret entrance was hidden and a barely recognizable trail led to it. The "secret" entrance was within a sculpted dwarven statue with elaborate steps leading up to it.
   The setting sun activated the keyhole. The rising moon activated the keyhole.
   Bilbo went into the secret tunnel twice. The first time he saw Smaug and took a cup back to the dwarves. When Smaug realized this, he flew out to find the theif. The dwarves heard him coming and hid in the tunnel and Smaug ate 6 of their ponies. The next day on his second trip, Bilbo talked with Smaug. After taunting him, the dragon sneaked out, destroyed the secret entrance while the dwarves were hiding in the tunnel and flew off to laketown. Bilbo went in once.
   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.
