Jessica Rabbit and Sharon Stone have at least one thing in common: their apparent, if momentary, lack of underwear.
Viewers pause to focus on Jessica Rabbit's charms
That's probably why Jessica's risque scene in the partly animated Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988) is the fifth most-paused "blink and you'll miss it" moment in movies, according to Lovefilm, a British DVD rental and streaming service.
First, as if you hadn't guessed, is Stone's iconic leg-crossing scene in 1992's Basic Instinct.
Eighth place goes to a scene in Disney's The Lion King (1994) which is entirely family friendly. In it, dust spells out "S.F.X." -- a reference to the special effects used during animation.
The saucy Basic Instinct scene drew a third of the votes in the poll by the DVD rental and streaming service.
Here are the other most-often-paused moments in the Top 10:
2. The Back-Up Plan -- Jennifer Lopez naked.
3. Star Wars - Episode IV: A New Hope -- Stormtrooper bangs his head.
4. Trading Places -- Jamie Lee Curtis flashes.
6. Fight Club -- Brad Pitt flashes briefly in hospital.
7. Iron Man 2 -- Captain America's shield appears on desk.
9. Tron -- cameo appearance by Pacman.
10. Eyes Wide Shut -- Nicole Kidman naked.
