Distinguishes itself from other teen movies by having a very different type of plot-not a great movie but far from bad.
9 March 2004 | by (Conn) – See all my reviews

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.
