Pro: Jack and Rose have more than a shared interest in Rose being naked.
"Rose and Jack don't have much time together, but even the little they share isn't all about making out and engaging in erotic drawing sessions. They dance and spit and talk about what they want out of life and who they want to be. It's true their interest in each other starts out superficially — Rose is the beautiful, unattainable girl Jack stares at from the lower deck. Jack is the kind of free spirit Rose has always wanted to be. But it also becomes clear that they enjoy each other's company as people, not just as ideas."

Pro: The power of the tin whistle.
"Whether you feel that the scourge of '90s music isn't 'The Macarena' but Céline Dion's omnipresent Titanic ballad, you at least have to admit that 'My Heart Will Go On' evokes emotion in the listener. It instantly lends weight to the couple's romance, as they come to represent every doomed pair whose love continues on in their memories (or in the words of elderly women hanging out in submarines). The song, even more than Rose's ultimate return to an afterlife with Jack, convinces audiences that she never really let go of her first love (her poor actual husband, btw)."
