John Q (2001)
This is an odd movie that tries to tug at the heartstrings but ends up just looking kind of ridiculous. The doctor and hospital administrator that are supposed to be the villains of the story aren't all that villainous - just cold and distant, who deliver bad news as though they were giving a homework lesson. The music choices are jarring and strange, the opening scene seems for a long time like it has nothing to do with anything, and the end is a jumble of cliches all fighting each other for dominance. Plus, the heart in the end is the fakest looking heart ever. It's like a half-filled water balloon.
My Netflix rating: 3 stars
