John Q

Trivia: The message "For Sasha" which appears just before the end credits is a dedication to director Nick Cassavetes' daughter.

Trivia: The scene where George W Bush is speaking about health care while John and Denise are watching TV there is also shot with footage of Al Gore because the election was between the time of shooting and release.

Factual error: There is a scene where John Q's son whispers to him with a breathing tube down his throat. It is physically impossible to speak, even whisper, with a breathing tube.

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.
