The Most Paused Scenes in Movie History

Since the beginning of cinema, one moment in a film can completely blow our minds. In a single second, a movie frame can persuade us immediately on how we view the entire movie, its actors, and its backdrops. Sometimes, it’s these moments we remember more than the entire movie itself. Below, we’ve rounded up the most paused scenes in history from our all-time favorite movies.

There s Something About Mary

In one of Ben Stiller’s best and most quotable films, this romantic comedy was the first of its kind to push the envelope when it came to sneaking in shots and dialogue not usually seen. One such shot just happens to be the very pause-worthy moment viewers cringe when they see, but still can’t help but freeze-frame for a second.

It’s a scene that’ll make you exclaim, “Ohhhh noooo!”, but much like a bad car wreck, you just can’t look away. RIP to Ben Stiller’s zipper.
