PG-13 | | Crime, Drama, Thriller
John Quincy Archibald takes a hospital emergency room hostage when his insurance won't cover his son's heart transplant.
One of the recurring themes in this movie is having faith and hope. Gus tells John Q to have faith. His wife Denise attends church and reminds John to pray. Lester tells John that he has to accept the situation and put it in God's hands. The irony in this is that John Q and Mikey's blood type is B Positive. Or, Be positive, have hope.
John Q. Archibald:
Just try to stay awake for a minute, son, I need to tell you a few things.
Mike Archibald: Okay, Dad.
John Q. Archibald: You always listen to your mother, understand? Do what she tells you to do. She's your best friend. Tell her you love her every day. You're too young for girls ...
John Q. Archibald: ....
In the opening scene, "beautiful woman" sticks her head out of her car window, and her hair does not move.
