A high school nerd, Jerry Mitchell (Siemaszko) is assigned to write a piece for the school paper about new boy Buddy Revell (Tyson), who is rumored to be a psychopathic nutcase. When Jerry accidentally touches Buddy, he says that they must fight in the parking lot at 3pm. Jerry will just about do anything to avoid the confrontation. Written by

During the opening credits, when Jerry is driving to school, at 5:15 he narrowly misses a red Peugeot 505 and a blue Plymouth Reliant at an intersection. At 6:45 when he goes through the red light intersection, the same cars are used for the cross-section stunt. See more »
Distinguishes itself from other teen movies by having a very different type of plot-not a great movie but far from bad.
I remember this movie from so long ago, it had a pretty fun storyline and will hold your attention. I don't think it's by any means a classic although it IS funny. The main problem is the casting of richard tyson as the bully, I saw him in "two moon junction" and he was great in that but I didn't buy him as a bullying nut, although it was fun to see him in another movie(saw it after 2 moon).
Three o' clock is a good "lost gem" type of movie to dig out when viewing old teen movies or to be seen by today's fans of teen movies. I would give this about a 5 on the casting, 7 on laughs and 8 for originality. Good for any fan of 80's teen movies to check out.
