The 22 Most Paused Movie Moments Of All Time

Arts & Entertainment |

Have you ever watched a movie and spotted something on-screen and just had to pause it. We have all had the moment where we scrambled to find the remote to rewind it back to a specific spot. If you have then you’ll understand how certain scenes in movies become the most paused scenes of all time.

From steamy on camera moments that we replay over and over to scenes where extras mess up big time, there are so many pause-worthy moments.  Some movies even give us clues as to what will happen later on in the film. Let’s face it, we love being detectives when it comes to our favorite movies.

1. Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)

Topping almost every list of paused movie moments, you have Fast Times. Linda Barrett and Stacy Hamilton are going for an afternoon swim as Stacy’s older brother Brad is watching over them. When Phoebe Cates exits the pool in her skimpy red bikini, then removing it completely, every single tape stopped.
