Juvenile delinquency was high, and quite a few film critics concluded this film was made to show them they should be more thankful for what they have. [[{{Jossed}} It wasn't]], though it is easy enough to misread it that way.

* MementoMacguffin: Averted with the ring that belonged to the children’s mother, which makes one appearance in the film and then is never seen again. Played straighter with their fatherís photo, though.
