John Q

Plot hole: It seemed to take the police an awfully long time to get to the hospital once it was taken under seige. It seemed to take the camera man an excess of 10 minutes to realize something was wrong. After John took the camera out it was another estimated 15-25 minutes before the police came. I find it hard to believe that the police would be that slow to get to a hospital and that the camera operator would take a few minutes before phoning something in.

Continuity mistake: When they bring in the car crash victim (future heart donor), the victim is in perfect condition. No blood, broken bones or anything. Pretty good to have been hit by a truck. (01:32:20)

Question: When John Q and his wife were in the meeting discussing the surgery, Rebecca Payne mentions that they had a little over $1,000 in savings. At the beginning of the movie, his wife's car was repossessed because he couldn't make the payments. Why didn't they use the money in the savings to pay for the car loan to avoid repossession?

Answer: Using the $1000 would only delay their car being repossessed, and they may be much further behind than that in their payments. In that case, their savings would be completely depleted and they'd still have no car.
