Fred is sent to jail and Silver exonerated. The movie closes with Mary Lee being sent to Girls Town in Silver's place, sporting the same bad attitude Silver had when she first went there, and Silver happy knowing that her sister now has the same chance to turn things around that she did.

* MeaningfulEcho: Upon arriving at Girls Town, Silver requests the right to call the Mother Superior something else, saying "mother is a dirty word to me." Mary Lee says the exact same thing when she arrives at the end of the movie, with Silver smiling knowingly and saying "You'll learn."

** The movie tries to be a straight-up morality tale about religion and friendship turning around the life of an angsty juvenile delinquent. The problem is the event that got Silver sent to to Girls Town is something that she didn't even have anything to do with, making it seem like the message is "getting punished for things you didn't do is the best way to better yourself."

* KnightTemplarParents: Chip's father. You can give him credit for being absolutely vicious with the girl he thinks killed his son, but he loses that credit for jumping to conclusions and basically admitting he doesn't care if she's guilty or not, he just wants revenge on ''someone''.

* PapaWolf: Even though he is shown to be wrong and jumping to conclusions, you can definitely give Chip's father some credit for being absolutely ''vicious'' with the girl who he thinks murdered his son.

* ItsAllAboutMe: After the fatal GameOfChicken, Fred seems far less concerned with the fact that one of his friends is dead and far more concerned that his Dad is going to find out he was hot rodding again and take his car.

** The handling of Serafina's obsession is another one. So, being friends with your stalker is supposed to make them not crazy? To its credit, the movie did show that that was a stupid idea and yet Jimmy still keeps trying that same tactic even after her suicide attempt, and the movie seems to be implying that he's doing the right thing after all!
