1982’s “Tron” was one of Disney’s most popular sci-fi films, and as you may know by now, Disney loves to hide Easter eggs in its movies, and often, these eggs are some sort of Mickey Mouse reference.
There’s a scene in Tron when the flying solar sailer is hijacked, and if you pay close attention, Mickey Mouse’s head silhouette appears in the background. This became one of the most paused scenes in history because people couldn’t quite make out the shape the first few times.
The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
When "The Wolf of Wall Street" was released to cinemas in 2013, moviegoers worldwide couldn't stop talking about it. There was one scene, in particular, that moviegoers felt inclined to pause - and no, it wasn't the slo-mo scene in which Jordan Belfort decided to abuse quaaludes.
The scene involved the leading lady, played by the talented Margot Robbie, attempting to seduce Leonardo DiCaprio's character. There you have it, one of the most-paused movie scenes in recent memory!
The Godfather (1972)
Considered by many to be one of the best films of all time, Coppola’s "The Godfather" was a landmark moment for cinema when it came out in 1972. There are many memorable scenes and lines throughout the film, but one of the most shocking is the infamous dead horse’s head in the bed scene.
This scene became one of the most paused in movie history because, apart from its shocking nature, viewers couldn’t determine if it was actually a real-life horse’s head. The truth is they used props for the rehearsals, but for the actual scene, they did use a real horse’s head.
The Little Mermaid (1989)
Everyone remembers the scene in "The Little Mermaid" when Eric is about to marry a disguised Ursula, but not many remember the priest that was about to marry them. It turns out that Disney drew the priest character with knobby knees that were protruding from his robe, but due to the position of the knee, it looked like something else, something very inappropriate, was showing under his robe.
Disney was actually sued for this, and they had to fix the issue for later versions of the film. But millions of people had already paused the scene too many times.
Three Men and a Baby (1987)
The movie "Three Men a Baby" was a hit when it came out back in the 80s, and so was the urban legend that was created around one of its scenes.
Many viewers caught the scene where there appears to be a young boy standing behind a curtain, and since they didn’t know what to make of it, people started saying it was a ghost that lived in the apartment where the movie was filmed. After a while, the director came out and said it was a cardboard cutout prop they’d accidentally left in the scene.
