We can stop and replay our favorite scenes and notice things that we didn’t spot the first time. We pause scenes for different reasons, and that gives us time to process everything we watch. We can feed our curiosity and then share our thoughts with others. These are some of the most paused scenes in Hollywood history and many will surprise you.

Fast Times At Ridgemont High (1982)


Oh Phoebe Cates, where do we even begin? This black haired beauty was making waves literally and figuratively when she appeared in the classic film, “Fast Times at Ridgemont High.” Cates’ character, Linda Barrett, is seen going for a swim in her teeny tiny red bikini.

When she finally decides to ascend and step out of the water, teenagers get a chance to see Cates’ in all her glory, salivating as they watched her graceful moves and probably pausing the scene perhaps one time too many. Of course, the other scene where Cates actually removes her top is another highly paused scene, but unless we want to get into trouble, we can’t actually show you that. Just watch it on YouTube as everyone else does!
