Anybody ever see "3 o'Clock High?"  Don't remember the actors, but it's about a dork who p**ses off a new kid psycho and is going to get his ass kicked as soon as school's out.  It's my favorite '80s flick, and I can't find it anywhere.....Does anyone have a copy?  I'll buy or trade for it......

It's way out of print; has a copy for $79.99, the rental price, though it lists a link to a copy for $39.99.

Good luck.

Try E-Bay

There are actually numerous copies for sale ... most under $25.

Very fun flick. I taped this from Cinemax once upon a time, but I know it's among the many movies I recorded that my parents taped over with ABC Sports BOWLING tournaments when I left for college.

It's been so long since I saw it ... it had a goth/punk chick that -- if she wasn't the girl from Real Genius -- she was a dead ringer. She worked with "our hero" in their student store or something.

After 3-O'clock, I had another crazy teen high school flick with a very young Kenau Reeves ... about a kid who bamboozles a popular girl into going to the prom with him, then he accidentally sells her to a pimp while he's drugged. (I await Squishy's reprimand for not consulting IMDB prior to posting.) It wasn't half bad, and had some fun moments. They just don't make trashy teen flicks like they used to.

That Keanu Reeves movie is called THE NIGHT BEFORE.

The movie "My Bodyguard" is also a good movie about young people fighting after school. Late 70's or early 80's film.

Didn't 3-O'clock have some crazy camera angles? I remember the camera doing some sprial angle when the kid got into more trouble.

I think the show " Parker Lewis Can't Lose" took many of thier ideas and camera angles from 3-O'clock High. That show was lame, but very typical of FOX's early shows. Do you remember "The adventures of beans baxtor".

Yes, i have it at home. I can't remember the name of the dorky kid, but the nutter who don't like being touched was in Two Moon Junction - i think his name is Richard Tyson. Not so sure about selling it though, depends where abouts you are.
