When we think about how movies are being made, we are always amazed. Whenever they start a project, film producers pay a great deal of attention to detail! “In addition to bringing to life our favorite stories, they also like to drop small details that will make you gape and ask, “Was it what I think it was!?? There’s really no reason for you to pause as well as rewind in movie theaters to confirm if you really have seen what you believe you did. However with the rise of home entertainment as well as streaming, by pressing a button, we already have the capacity to verify our suspicions!

These Iconic Movie Scenes Have Made People Hit Pause For Decades Now

These Iconic Movie Scenes Have Made People Hit Pause For Decades Now

Boogie Nights – Changing Room Scene

Who might have figured so much critical acclaim would be given to a movie about a porn star? By achieving the success that it did, this film has proven us all wrong. The film, released in 1997, was followed by an adult movie star named Dirk Diggler. Audiences were teased about how massive his member is throughout the film. We only ended up getting to see it at the end of the movie, however. To check it out a majority of folks clicked the stop button. The reality was, it was just a prothetic.

Thor: The Dark World – Chalkboard Scene

If you’re a big admirer of Marvel films, we assume you know that slowing down at different points in the movies is worthwhile. In its lineup, there have been over 20 films and there are heaps of Easter eggs for everyone to explore! Fans very often search for hidden messages with pleasure. At this moment, let us focus on Thor: The Dark World. We refer to the incident with the chalkboard full of stuff that Dr. Selvig did write while he’s in a facility for mental health. Real mathematical expressions and astronomical hypotheses are included! You’ll find ‘Nidavellir’ on it as well. This will come as a shock if you’ve ever seen Avengers: Infinity War.

Iron Man 2 – Nick Fury Scene

On the list, we have yet another Marvel flick! We see Nick Fury and Tony Stark together towards the conclusion of Iron Man 2. You’ll discover a video screen displaying areas that have revealed superhero activity if you look behind them. The map shows Africa, Greenland, as well as New Mexico, in specific. It is no random occurrence that these locations are also where Wakanda, the body of Captain America, and the hammer of Thor are situated, respectively. In the Atlantic Ocean, there’s another one. Fans theorize that this is the place of Atlantis and Namor, respectively.

The Back-Up Plan – Mirror Scene

Jennifer Lopez stars in this film as she plays a lady as she goes through artificial insemination as well as the childbearing that follows. That certain folks have a fascination with her back is no big surprise. There really is nothing at all new about this. In one incident, while looking at herself in the mirror, audiences see the actress check her derriere. As soon as they saw this many fans paused, but the reality was that the starlet didn’t even appear in this shot. For the actual scene, they made the decision to use a body double!

There’s Something About Mary – Zipper Scene

Isn’t it amazing to see that There’s Something About Mary has aged pretty well? More than two decades since it came out, the movie is now considered a comedy classic. There were a lot of iconic scenes in the hit movie. This time, let us focus on the moment with Ben Stiller and the unfortunate zipper situation before prom. We do not know about you, but we are already wincing, just thinking about it! For some reason, however, viewers like to hit pause and rewind to see this scene one more time.

Tron – Flying Solar Sailer Scene

Disney movies are notorious for all the hidden Mickeys. No, you probably won’t find Mickey Mouse himself in the movie. However, you will see the identifiable silhouette of his head in different scenes. This sci-fi movie was actually produced by Disney, which explains why you will find a hidden Mickey in the background as the solar sailer gets hijacked. Not a lot of people have noticed this Easter egg!

The Lion King – Floating Dust Scene

Have you heard of this one before? Who would have thought that The Lion King would have such a controversial scene? It happened when Simba slumps on the dusty cliff dejectedly. As the dirt floats off the rocks, it forms a couple of letters. People were shocked to see that it reads S-E-X since it was a movie for children. The outrage was unwarranted, however. The producers claimed that it actually says S-F-X as a way to pay tribute to the artists who worked on the movie. Do you think this was true?

The Little Mermaid – Disguised Ursula Wedding Scene

While the verdict is still out on the previous one, we can’t come up with a good excuse for this The Little Mermaid scene. Towards the end of the movie, Eric and Ursula get ready to marry each other while she was disguised as Vanessa. The priest moves around as he prepares to marry the pair. Viewers noticed that his crotch looks like it was protruding as if he is a bit too excited. In reality, it was just his knee! At any rate, Disney decided to change it to stop the backlash. This is the reason you are not going to find it in new versions of the movie.

Deadpool 2 – Vanisher’s Death Scene

While Deadpool is not a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, his two films also come with a lot of Easter eggs. Let us focus on a particular scene from the second movie. This is when we meet the Vanisher, who is a part of X-Force. Since he is invisible, viewers have no clue what he really looks like. The big reveal happens as he parachutes down and stumbles into power lines. We only see his face as he is getting electrocuted! Many viewers were shocked to see Brad Pitt play him in this brief moment.

Fast Times At Ridgemont High – Pool Scene

Do you like to say that you are a movie buff? If this is the case, we are sure that you are not surprised to see this movie on the list! This has one of the greatest pool scenes that cinema has ever seen. In case you needed a reminder, we are talking about the scene that shows Phoebe Cates exiting the pool and unclasping her bikini! Even though this only takes place in Brad’s imagination, it is nonetheless iconic.

Star Wars – Storm Trooper Scene

We really doubt that anyone is surprised to find Star Wars here. This scene has gotten so big that George Lucas himself decided to simply edit it in to make it look intentional! Do you remember when the door lifts up and the Storm Troopers file in? Much to the hilarity of the viewers, one of them hits their head on the door. This was not scripted at all! You might have been known about this error before. It has gotten so famous that the director added sound effects to this scene in the later versions of the movie.

The Wizard Of Oz – Munchkin Scene

If you watch The Wizard of Oz, you should also be on the lookout for various Easter eggs. This one has something to do with an urban legend, which says that there was a body on a rope in the forest scene. Once people took note of this, a conspiracy theory emerged about how one of the munchkin actors took their lives on the movie set. The studio denied the claims and even explained that no actor with dwarfism was present on the set that day. With the help of modern technology, we have since learned the answer to this mystery. It was actually nothing more than a large bird! Whew.

Three Men And A Baby – Ghost Scene

This is yet another urban legend that spread across movie viewers. Have you ever seen Three Men and a Baby? The next time that you watch it, you should look out for the ghostly person behind a curtain. Once the public noticed this, people said that the house in the movie had been haunted. The story goes that it was the ghost of the boy who used to live there! The studio put an end to the rumor by saying that they shot the movie in a studio lot. Aside from that, the person was actually nothing more than a life-sized Ted Danson promotional cardboard folded in half. We are glad that they cleared it up.

Basic Instinct – Interrogation Scene

We are sure that you already have an idea which scene in Basic instinct we want to talk about. Yes, we want you to recall the interrogation scene! It shows Sharon Stone in questioning after the death of her boyfriend. As this is happening, she shifts in her seat and uncrosses her legs. She leaves them open ever so slightly for a brief moment. What makes it so memorable was that she does not have underwear on. Even if you have not seen the movie before, we are sure that you can see why it is iconic.

The Wolf Of Wall Street – Nursery Scene

Let us not forget about that naughty scene in The Wolf of Wall Street! The movie is full of memorable moments, but the best part of the project for us is none other than Margot Robbie. The actress heated things up when her character imposes a “no touching” rule on her onscreen husband in the nursery scene. But what she fails to realize is that her jealous husband installed cameras all over the house. This includes the teddy bear, which had been recording her antics at that moment.

Jurassic World – Pterodactyl Attack Scene

Did you notice the unexpected cameo in Jurassic World? Anyone who has ever seen the movie can’t possibly forget about the pterodactyl attack in which the dinosaurs terrorize the pedestrians. As the dinosaurs attacked the outdoor seating of the café, there is a man in a bright orange top with a white cap on his head. He makes sure to carry his margaritas as he ran off to safety! There is a specific singer we associate with margaritas… Yep, that guy was actually Jimmy Buffett himself.

Raiders Of The Lost Ark – Confrontation Scene

Can you think of a better action hero than Indy? We doubt it. Harrison Ford deserves a lot of credit for bringing such a charismatic character to life. In Raiders of the Lost Ark, the character confronts Nazis holding up a bazooka. He asks them to leave and let go of Marion. Belloq, portrayed by Paul Freeman, asks him to refrain from firing. As he was talking, a fly actually landed on his face and went inside his mouth. We have to give him credit for not letting such a thing stop him!

Man Of Steel – Space Battle Scene

Superman and General Zod engage in battle in Man of Steel. When the movie first came out, people had no idea if it was going to be a part of a DC Cinematic Universe. Even so, it boasted many Easter eggs that paid tribute to the comics! During their final get down, the two are seen destroying the city as they duke it out. When they reach the outer atmosphere, they even crash into a satellite! If you pressed the pause button right at that moment, you would see that the satellite has a Wayne sign on it. We are sure that you know which DC superhero bears that last name!

Ghostbusters – Ghost Outbreak Scene

When Ghostbusters came out in 1984, it took the world by storm. It was a great movie that appealed to viewers from different age groups. For this reason, we bet that no one expected for a porn star to make a cameo! During the ‘70s, Ron Jeremy was easily one of the most famous adult film actors. He worked on mainstream projects as well, although he is typically just an extra as was the case in Ghostbusters. You can spot him in the crowd on the street when a ghost outbreak happens.

Teen Wolf – End Scene

Sadly, this sci-fi classic failed to age as nicely as Back to the Future did. Despite this, it is still fun to watch Teen Wolf. But there was one particular scene that caught the attention of viewers. Do you remember when the main character celebrates a basketball victory towards the end of the movie? When the camera pans to the bleachers, there is a person with their fly down. People were shocked to see that there was something like that in the movie. The producers explained that it was not a guy but a woman. There was a chance that the costume was just tight, so she unbuttoned her pants.

Moana – The Animal Transformation Scene

This animated film was easily one of the best movies from Disney in recent memory. Moana is a gorgeous musical about a Hawaiian teenage girl who goes on a journey to find herself. There were a lot of Easter eggs that people failed to notice! When she sets off on her journey, she asks a demigod called Maui for help. He has a hook that lets him transform into whatever animal he has in mind! This happens way too quickly, which is people did not realize that he changes into Sven, the reindeer from Frozen. This is something that you will only notice if you hit pause at the right moment.

Tangled – The “I Have A Dream” Scene

Another animated Disney film, Tangled, was based on an older one: Rapunzel. We are sure that you are already familiar with the story of a princess with very long blonde hair. Sadly, she is stuck inside a tower because an old woman kidnapped her when she was a baby. Do you remember the scene in the tavern? A lot of people pause to confirm to check whether they see things or not. Nope, you will really find Pinocchio chilling out on a beam. How awesome is that?

Monsters, Inc. – The Room Scene

Her is another movie that deserves the status of a modern classic! Monsters, Inc shows the beautiful friendship between a young human girl and a huge monster. Near the end of the movie, they are together in her room. The little girl shows her friend some of her toys, which includes a stuffed clownfish. Folks will now immediately think of Nemo once they spot this, but Finding Nemo had not yet come out at the time. It only came out a couple of years after the release of this movie.

Big Hero 6 – The Police Station Scene

Did you enjoy this movie about a robotics genius in a futuristic city? Hiro Hamada is a young boy who organizes superheroes to team up in the hopes of catching a masked villain. Frozen fans tend to hit the pause button in this one scene. When Hiro goes to the police station to file a report, you should take a good look at the “wanted” poster on the wall! You are going to find Prince Hans there.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit? – Car Crash Scene

Just a heads up, you should keep an eye out for Easter eggs and background gags when you watch this movie. However, most people pause the movie to stare at Jessica Rabbit! There is a scene in which the car crashes into an electric pole. The gorgeous redhead then flies through the air, with her dress hiking up. Viewers then find out that she likes to go commando. It is a very brief scene, so people do not notice it unless they already know about it. Sadly, they have since altered the scene to fully cover her.

Fight Club – Tyler Durden Appearances

We have already mentioned a movie with Brad Pitt in it, but Fight Club might be his most iconic project ever. If you have not seen it yet, look away because there is a spoiler coming up. Anyway, we learn that Tyler Durden is actually just the alter ego of the main character. It is interesting to note that the imaginary character appears on the screen four separate times before he is introduced to the Narrator. As you can see, the filmmaker put a lot of thought into the big reveal.

Cinderella – Walt Disney Pictures Logo

This classic was first released in the ‘50s. Even to this day, it has been bewitching viewers! However, it has yet another claim to fame. Fun fact: the castle in the movie is actually the exact same one used in the logo of Walt Disney Pictures. Have you ever noticed this before? Disney actually only started to use it in the logo in 1995, give or take. Over the years, it has changed a few times until we have gotten to the version that we currently have. This is why people like to pause the movie when we first see the castle!

Hercules – Nemean Lion Scene

For many Disney fans, The Lion King is the greatest movie it has ever made. If you ask us, it is definitely among the best ones. Who would have thought that the main villain was going to appear in a different movie? Scar makes a cameo in Hercules for a hot moment. At one point, the demigod is shown wearing his skin. There are two theories at play here. Some people think that he was the Nemean Lion. On the other hand, other folks think that it was a reference to Zazu’s joke that Scar should be turned into a rug. At any rate, this fascinating scene has made people press the pause button!

Fight Club – Starbucks Cup

This is the second time that this movie has appeared on our list. What can we do when it is such a great movie full of Easter eggs? We do not know if you have noticed all the Starbucks cups in the movie. Maybe you were wondering if your coffee addiction was just making you see things. Just so you know, this was actually true. There is indeed a Starbucks cup in many different scenes in the movie!

Star Wars: The Phantom Menace – Senate Scene

Can you believe how many movies there are in the Star Wars franchise now? Sadly, The Phantom Menace has gone down as one of the most unpopular ones. As a matter of fact, it is a popular opinion that it was a low point for the series. Even though fans do not particularly like it, there is a scene that has made viewers take a closer look. This happens to be the galactic senate scene. It shows the Asogians, who come from the same alien race as E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, as they mingle with many other species.

Disney’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame – Street Scene

Disney had always liked to add Easter eggs in its films even before it bought the Marvel Cinematic Universe. For example, take a look at this scene from The Hunchback of Notre Dame. As he sings from above, the audience is treated to a view of the street. Upon closer inspection, you should be able to spot a number of familiar faces. There is Belle of Beauty and the Beast reading a book. Aside from that, you will also see the Magic Carpet from Aladdin, as well as Pumba of The Lion King fame.

The Graduate – Bedroom Scene

When it comes to dark comedies, no one does it better than The Graduate. Can you believe that it has been more than 50 years since the movie first came out? Back then, it was nominated for seven Academy Awards. From then until now, people like to hit the pause button when Mrs. Robinson undresses in an attempt to seduce young Benjamin Braddock! It is a truly iconic scene.

The Cabin In The Woods – White Board Scene

Just so you know, The Cabin in the Woods is still very enjoyable even if you are not a fan of classic horror. This is a masterful film that made fun of the horror genre. It was one of the most satisfying movies that we have ever seen. We do not want to spoil you if you have not yet seen it! There is a part of the movie that shows a white dry-erase board. When you take a look at it, you are going to find various characters from horror! Check it out. We bet that you will be thrilled to see those names.

102 Dalmatians – The Lady And The Tramp Scene

The sequel of 101 Dalmatians was called 102 Dalmatians. This is an adorable movie that is adored by people of all ages! If you are a fan of Disney, you are in for a treat. At one point in the movie, the dogs are seen watching yet another iconic pair of hounds: The Lady and the Tramp. You might not catch it on your first watch, but make sure to pause the movie when it gets to this scene! It was a heartwarming scene on its own, but this makes it even more moving. Aww.

Toy Story 3 – The Garbage Man

How can you possibly not love the Toy Story series? If you are a true Disney fan, you might already know all the iconic moments in all three movies. But allow us to remind you if you need a little help. We want you to focus on the garbage man in the third installment. In the first movie, we are introduced to a rowdy child by the name of Sid. This was the boy who liked to experiment with toys! Who would have thought that he would appear in the third film? People realized that this was the same guy because he was wearing the same shirt, the black one with a white skull. What a cool Easter egg.

The Dark Knight – The Scheming Nurse

There are many Batman movies out there, but some people strongly believe that The Dark Knight was the best one. At any rate, we can’t deny that Heath Ledger did a great job at playing the Joker. There are many Easter eggs scattered throughout the movie. Let us focus on the scene in the hospital, when the Joker puts on a nurse outfit. There is a hidden message in this part of the movie! If you check out her name tag, it says, “Matilda.” Fun fact: this is actually the name of the late actor’s daughter with Michelle Williams!

The Godfather – There Are Oranges Everywhere

It is not a secret that The Godfather is an amazing movie trilogy. However, have you noticed how much oranges appear in the movie? It turns out that the fruit was used as a symbol for death. Whenever a character eats, handles, or slices one of them, it means that death is coming for them. This becomes more apparent in the third installment of the series. A lot of fans like to return to the first two movies to see if this is the case! We do not want to give anyway anything, but it is worth checking out when you feel like rewatching the trilogy.

The Beauty And The Beast – The Death Of Gaston

The last entry on the list has something to do with Disney as well. Beauty and the Beast came out in 1991 and has charmed a lot of young girls and boys since then. We all know that every Disney movie needs a villain. Once Gaston hurts the Beast, he ends up losing his balance and tumbles into his death from the rooftop. Even though he is a villain, it is still awful to see him die like that. Have you ever noticed that there are skulls in his eyes as he falls? If you hit the pause button at that exact moment, you are going to see the image below!
