Three O'Clock High

Jerry is an average guy at his high school. The day he wakes up late for school, and it turns out to be the worst day of his life. As he makes it to school just in time for homeroom, he finds out he is assigned to do an interview for the school paper about the new guy at school. The new guy is named Buddy Rouvelle, who is known throughout the town as a scary "criminal" type of guy. What Jerry doesn't know is that Buddy doesn't like to be touched, at all. Jerry runs into Buddy in the school bathroom and decides to approach him about the interview. After talking to Buddy, Jerry pats Buddy on the arm. This infuriates Buddy and Buddy then tells Jerry they are going to fight at 3 o'clock after school! The whole school finds out and rumors start to fly about how Jerry is going to get beat up. Jerry spends his entire day (with help of his friends and his sister) trying to get out of the fight with Buddy.


Plot hole: The fact that Buddy placed the knife and note in the steering wheel of Jerry's car is unrealistic. Buddy first met Jerry in the bathroom after school started and Jerry hasn't gone outside of the school building to his car until this point later in the morning... so there's no way that Buddy could have known which car was Jerry's to pull this stunt.

Buddy Revell: You know what Mitchell? You're the biggest pussy I've ever seen in my life. Didn't even try. How does that feel?

More quotes from Three O'Clock High

Question: One thing I never understood in the movie. At the end right before the final punch, the principal sits up and says "don't fuck this up Mitchell." Was he referring to not losing the fight? Was he referring to his school career? It is hard to tell especially since he saved Mitchell from the police, then smiled and nodded at him before walking away.


Answer: He's telling him to win the fight. The principal knows if the bully isn't defeated, he'll continue to harass him and the students. He believes if the bully loses the fight, he'll no longer be a problem at the school.
