Very watchable. Circumstances tumble a nerdy type into a fight showdown with the new school psycho. Three o'clock is when the fight's to occur. A bit like High Noon in the countdown aspect. Unlike Gary Cooper, Casey Siemaszko tries very hard to escape the fate that awaits him. This one doesn't get on tv as much as other teen school films such as Sixteen Candles, but it's every bit as good.

One of those classic teen comedy films that is out to make the geeks feel better about themselves. This is one of those movies that I rank in the reigns of Teen Wolf. Unfortunately Universal Studios didn't do much to promote this film and they let it fall out to where not so many people have seen it. While the film isn't one of those that has a lot of well known actors, and the soundtrack wasn't loaded with popular or even classic music by any era, it is one of those funny feel good kind of movies. So if you are looking for a family oriented film (albeit somewhat dated) that kids can watch and will probably enjoy this is a good one to pick up.
