The nerd Jerry Mitchell is responsible for the student store at the Weaver High-School. When the troublemaker delinquent Buddy Revell is transferred from a continuation high-school, one teacher assigns Jerry to write an article about the notorious Buddy Revell to the school newspaper. Jerry stumbles upon Buddy in the bathroom and touches the shoulder of the bad boy that schedules a fight with Jerry at three o'clock at the parking lot. Along the day, Jerry tries to find a means to avoid the fight.Written by

Many movie posters for the film ran with the following blurb: "Jerry Mitchell just bumped into Buddy Revell. Now Jerry isn't thinking about math or english. Because at three o'clock, he's history. Three O'Clock High. When school's over, it's all over." See more »
When the football player goes to beat Buddy up in the library (after Jerry had paid him to do so), he pokes Buddy's chest with his index finger. When his finger presses on Buddy's shirt you can see the outline of Buddy's mic/equip. See more »
You and me, we're gonna have a fight. Today. After school. Three o'clock. In the parking lot. You try and run, I'm gonna track you down. You go to a teacher, it's only gonna get worse. You sneak home, I'm gonna be under your bed.

When I think of the eighties teen genre, I think about John Hughes and John Cusack...and a little movie called Three O'Clock High. Three O'Clock High is the greatest eighties movie that no one knows about. It does, in fact, blow The Breakfast Club out of the water. Casey Siemaszko is perfect in the lead as Jerry Mitchell and he is the ultimate underdog. You can't help but love his character. He definitely has a large degree of untapped talent. The most unforgettable character however, is Richard Tyson's infamous Buddy Revell. I won't say that he completely steals the show, but he does come close to it. Revell has many a one-liner and I quote him on a weekly basis. And who could forget Tangerine Dream's score. They are also an integral ingredient of the eighties flick. This is a truly brilliant piece of comedy. Three O'Clock High is a comic gem as well as a must see.
"You and me, we're gonna have a fight-today-after school-3 O'Clock-in the parking lot. You try and run, I'm gonna track you down. You go to a teacher, it's only gonna get worse. You sneak home, I'll be under your bed. You and me...3 O'Clock."
