Anytime you see Alison Brie on screen, there’s a good chance she’ll do something quirky or out of this world. This film was no different; in “Sleeping With Other People,” Brie gave viewers a dance scene that they probably didn’t expect. In the film, Brie plays the role of Lainey, a woman who reunites with Jake, an old college friend played by Jason Sudeikis.
The scene had Jake starring at his former college fling – though the closest viewers got was pausing the scene in hopes of making it last longer. Overall the movie was a success and recieved positive reviews from critics.
Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)
While it may not be the most excellent movie of all time, "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" is home to one of the most-paused moments in cinema. The movie is based on the 1981 book titled Fast Times at Ridgemont High: A True Story and starres Sean penn, Jenifer Jason Leigh and many other big names.
Phoebe Cates's character, Linda Barrett, is going for a swim in her friend's pool in a red bikini. The most paused moment in this movie, and perhaps in movie history, comes when Linda finally climbs up the steps and gets out of the pool...dropping viewers' jaws on the floor.
Basic Instinct (1992)
In the cheerful 1990s, Sharon Stone was the biggest name in the industry and Hollywood and every movie that came out back then, was better then the other. One of them was "Basic Insttincy." "Basic Instinct" was a groundbreaking film for many reasons. First of all, we are blessed with a criminal mastermind who can keep her murder a secret.
In what might have been one of her most significant moments as an actress, Sharon Stone has made it on this list with a pause-worthy moment. In this scene, Stone's character decided to cross her legs in a dress in an attempt to confuse the detective, portrayed by Michael Douglas. Surprise, surprise! It works!
In the film "Zootopia," we're given a sneak peek into the lives of animals as they live their lives like humans in the big city. For the most part, the story revolves around a few animals as they try to uncover a conspiracy. In the middle of the mess, we're treated to a scene that is worth pausing.
One of the movie's characters glances at their iPod to reveal a list of musicians that have been renamed to fit the animal theme. Trust us, and this is a creative moment that is worth pausing and if the film were to be made today, we are sure the producers would have created the exact smae scene.
The Seven Year Itch (1955)
This scene has been paused so many times; the image has become iconic in its own right. In fact, we've seen it so many times, and it's hard to imagine this scene was part of a film, to begin with. In "The Seven Year Itch," Marilyn Monroe's character tempts the married male protagonist, Richard Sherman.
In one outstanding scene, Monroe gives us this moment when she walks over a vent from the ground that begins to blow her dress up. She holds it down, but the scene is one that has been paused countless times since the movie's release in 1955.
