    Many of you probably already saw it - maybe as far back as 1987.

    The movie -

    "Three O'clock High"

    It is a classic example of an "indie" film before that term meant pretentiousness.

    Smart, funny, wonderfully directed.

    This movie is a classic high school comedy about a guy trying to get out of getting his ass kicked at 3Pm at school.

    Rent it.

    I'm still waiting for "On Golden Pond" to come out on DVD.

    That's one of my all-time favs. I just love Katherine Hepburn.

    If you want to talk silly movies like 3 O'Clock High, well, then, I like the "Wedding Singer" LOL just kidding.
    On that note I love "Christmas Vacation", or just about anything with Goldy Hawn and Chevy Chase or Steve Martin for that matter.

    "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" would also have to go down on my include list for silly movies.

    A funny story about jams -

    I donated a bunch of my old clothes to an adult care home that my uncle is in. When I went to visit my uncle a couple weeks later, there was this old guy - 80, I&#39;m guessing, wearing my old jams. DAMN, that was funny.

    3 O&#39;clock High is a classic. I tend to lean towards New Jersey native Kevin Smith&#39;s movies such as Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, and last but not least Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. All classics&#33; All are must see movies. If your into the really stupid, catch The Best of Backyard Wrestling; moronic behavior at it&#39;s best&#33;&#33;&#33; Funniest all time for me has got to be Easy Money with Rodney Dangerfield and Joe Pesci&#33;
