1. Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (1998)
Everyone remembers this classic and quirky half-animated movie. Character Jessica Rabbit was quite the sex symbol of her time, despite being a cartoon character, and so this is why a lot of folks remember attempting to pause this particular scene.
2. Scanners (1981)
You’ve heard of gore for the sake of gore, and this is it. In this scene, a guy’s head explodes with absolutely no prior warning, so it’s no surprise that all you sadists out there naturally wanted to pause and rewind to watch it happen in horrifying slow motion.
3. Basic Instinct (1992)
Being another huge sex icon, Sharon Stone certainly got a lot of attention from people freeze framing the moment when… Well, you can take a guess at what.
4. She’s The Man (2006)
Amanda Bynes resorts to baring all to show that she is definitely a girl. The guy who’s shoulder we’re looking over is Channing Tatum, now a significantly ‘bankable’ movie star. But Amanda Bynes herself has since disappeared from our movie screens.
5. Wild Things (1998)
This movie has more than a few contenders for the most paused scene. But due to the fact that we’re keeping this PG, we can’t show you any of them. You’ll just have to find out for yourself!
6. Iron Man (2008)
Finally, one that isn’t about sex or nudity and is just down to plain old nerdiness. Pausing at a certain time in this movie will allow you to see the shield of another Marvel superhero, Captain America, under Robert Downey Jr’s armpit. If you’re a Marvel fan and you didn’t geek out over this, we don’t know what to say.
7. Burn After Reading (2008)
The shooting of Brad Pitt in this movie as he hides in the wardrobe was so subtle that nobody saw it coming. That accounts for the pauses and rewinds. We love those “wait, did that really just happen?” moments!
8. The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
Okay, look. If you’ve watched this film then you probably know what happens in this scene, so we won’t go into any more detail. Once again, trying to keep it PG here…
9. Entrapment (1999)
Alright, so this was certainly not the best movie in the world, but this Catherine Zeta-Jones film did fantastically at the box office. Perhaps, maybe, perchance, this particular scene played a role in it. We wonder why…
10. Pulp Fiction (1994)
The ‘steamy’ scene where Bruce Willis gets out of the shower had us all so appreciative that we were frantically pressing pause so we could watch it all over again.
