John Q


It's a testament to Denzel Washington's class that he manages to wring some emotion out of this didactic, daft `thriller'. He's a desperate father who takes an emergency room hostage to force the hospital to give his son a heart transplant. It's a workable notion - - Dog Day Afternoon meets ER, if you will - - but the script is so leaden and preachy as to be unintentionally hilarious.
