For a variety of reasons, such as shocking revelations, unexpected demises, or genitalia, movie scenes can be stunning or memorable. What? wait Rewind that moment! Sometimes elements on screen, such as an Easter egg, cameo, or editing error, catch viewers’ attention and cause them to push the pause button to look further. These “blink and you’ll miss it” situations frequently include either s-x or Disney animation. Sometimes they are simply foreshadowing in the traditional sense. In light of that, the following are some of the most paused movie scenes in cinematic history.
Fast Times at Ridgemont High by Phoebe Cates
You definitely didn’t grow up in the 1980s, but if you did, Phoebe Cates was your crush. Cates plays Linda Barrett in Fast Time at Ridgemont High, and she once swims in a pool with Jennifer Jason Leigh (Stacy Hamilton). Brad Hamilton, playing Judge Reinhold, imagines Barrett coming out of the pool in a red bikini and taking off her top as he watches from a distance. Generations of VHS owners have certainly paused the scene numerous times.
Leg Cross by Sharon Stone in “Basic Instinct”
Sharon Stone’s leg cross in Basic Instinct is without a doubt the most delayed sequence in the annals of Hollywood. She became the s-xual icon of the 1990s thanks to her portrayal of the murdering Catherine Tramell. Guys have been changing the batteries in their remote controls for years because of the moment in which Tramell subtly reveals her love of going commando while being questioned by police officials.
