28 of the Most Paused Moments in Movie History

If you are a big fan of watching movies at home, we’re sure you know how valuable the ‘pause’ button is. For example, the tool allows you to stop the film for a while if you are feeling overwhelmed. That way, you can take a breather and digest things first before proceeding. Other than that, the button can be useful too if you need to pee or get some food. Well that’s the huge advantage of watching on your couch as opposed to sitting in a theater, right?

In other instances though, hitting the pause button is also perfect for catching little details that most casual viewers might miss in first viewing. Case in point, this list compiled by Providr gives us the 28 most paused moments in movie history – like ever!

Read on and see for yourself.

#1. Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)

Young Phoebe Cates plays Linda Barrett in this movie and in one scene, she went for an afternoon swim with Stacy Hamilton, played by actress Jennifer Jason Lee. Brad, Stacy’s brother, is watching them and when Cates later left the pool, she just removed her red swimwear right there and then.

#2. Wild Things (1998)

This movie’s memorable moment, much like Cates’ Fast Times scene, is also in set in a pool – but this one involves two lovely girls, Neve Campbell and Denise Richards, sharing a kiss.

#3. Basic Instinct (1992)

Of course, no list of most paused movie moments will ever be complete without Basic Instinct. That epic leg crossing scene by Sharon Stone is definitely one of the most iconic in the history of films.

#4. Scanners (1981)

In this movie, Michael Ironside made a man’s head explode using his powers. Things happen too quickly and so seeing it once will never be enough.

#5. Cabin in the Woods (2012)

In one scene, a white board can be seen in the background containing lists of monsters and bad guys. Fans, of course, wanted to take a closer look.

#6. Wizard of Oz (1939)

This classic has a controversial scene where one of the munchkins appeared to have hung himself but the makers have said it’s nothing but a bird.

#7. Teen Wolf (1985)

Yes, this is supposed to be a family movie but in one of the frames, a background actor can be spotted with his zipper evidently down. Needless to say, that short scene has cracked up many viewers.

#8. The Little Mermaid (1989)

Believe it or not, this animated Disney classic has a not-so-kid-friendly scene. That of a priest who, let’s just say, got a bit “excited” for Ariel and Prince Eric’s wedding.

#9. Fight Club (1999)

Brad Pitt makes a brief appearance in this film. ‘Nuff said!

#10. Total Recall (1990)

Who could forget about that lady with three tits in this Arnold Schwarzenegger action flick? Answer: No one.

#11. Psycho (1960)

Norman Bates gets a skull superimposed over his face in one key moment. Blink and you will absolutely miss it.

#12. Wolf of Wall Street (2013)

Long before she became Harley Quinn of the Suicide Squad, Margot Robbie was Naomi Lapaglia. One scene stands out in the movie where she’s just ridiculously sexy.

#13. The Lion King (1994)

Eagle-eyed movie fans caught the word “SEX” in this Disney movie as it forms from the dust. The makers, however, said it’s actually “SFX” which is a nod to the studio’s special effects department. If you ask us, we’ll say it really looks more like an E than an F.

#14. Boogie Nights (1997)

Mark Wahlberg shows off his stuff in this adult movie. Sure, it’s prosthetic but fans still paused to get a better look.
