Jessica Rabbit and Sharon Stone have at least one thing in common: their apparent, if momentary, lack of underwear.
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.
