    One can excuse the movie's missteps and melodramatic moments in the greater interest of the strong statement it makes about our health care system. show more

    It's a worrying movie. I saw it at a young age and henceforth, The Q. in John Q may have meant "Cue the panic attack for 8 year olds"
