** 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."

She got sent to Girl's Town for hitting a teacher and violating probation, however.

* 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!

* 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."

%% * BrokenAesop: Tries to be a straight-up morality tale about juvenile delinquency. It comes across as "being punished for something that a) you didn't even do, b) was an accident, and c) would have been entirely justifiable even if you had (fighting off a would-be rapist) is the best way to turn your life around!" To be fair, the father who has her thrown into reform school is clearly shown to be in the wrong, and Silver was on probation.

* Hypocrite: Fred. He hates the Morgan sisters because one of them was present when his friend Chip died, even though it was an accident (which he knows, although he won't admit it), and he's willing to go so far as to {{Blackmail}} them to get revenge. Later, his own actions lead to the accidental death of another of his friends, during a GameOfChicken, but now all of a sudden it's okay, and he's willing to ship a teenage girl off to Mexico to escape punishment.
