This hilarious teen comedy is a lot of fun, I love it, it should be added to the list of essential 80s teen movies! I highly recommend it.

Three O'clock High is a funny 80's high school underdog story. So fun!

One of my favorite 80's teen movies, the whole movie is about the day in the life of a total virgin AV geek who lands himself trouble trying to land an interview with the new kid in school played by that guy who tried to kidnap those kids in kindergarden cop, who turns out to be a crazy steroid freak bully, who hates it when hes touched, sounds like so the conflict begin at 900 am his time and by three hes gonna have to fight this goon who is the biggest high school kid ever. He does whatever it tkes to avoid the fight or better yet get him kicked out of school, but Kharma is king and he lands him self in all kinds of trouble. 3 pm the best High school fight you have seen.. and a total 80s ending.. youll love it.
