Sam Wheat (Patrick Swayze) and Molly Jensen (Demi Moore) are a happy and loving couple living in New York City. The only problem in their relationship is Sam’s apparent discomfort with saying “I love you” to his girlfriend, only responding to her saying it with “ditto”. This bothers Molly, who feels she needs to hear him say “I love you” in return.

One night, while walking back to their new apartment after going to the theatre, they encounter a thief named Willy Lopez (Rick Aviles). He pulls a gun and Sam is shot. Sam chases Willy, but loses him; when he returns to Molly, he sees her cradling his own corpse, and realizes that he is now a ghost, trapped between worlds. Lights descend to take him away, but he flees.

Sam realizes that the robbery was planned when Willy sneaks into the house and rifles through his belongings. Sam follows Willy home and learns that his close friend and co-worker, Carl Bruner (Tony Goldwyn), hired Willy to rob Sam in the apparent robbery that went wrong in order to get his office computer password; Carl is involved in a money laundering deal at the bank where he and Sam worked. Sam had recently changed his computer password, locking Carl out of the phony accounts where Carl had stashed the money. Sam lashes out in frustration at his supposed best friend, but realizes that, as a ghost, he can do little.

When Sam returns to Oda Mae and Molly, Molly can hear and see him, as he has assumed a partly visible form. After saying a final goodbye to Oda Mae, he tells Molly he loves her, to which she responds with “ditto”. Sam then walks off into the bright light to heaven, saying “It’s amazing Molly. The love inside, you take it with you. Goodbye, Molly”. Sam then walks to heaven and Molly’s final words are, “See ya..”. the screen then fades to black.

Questioning his abillity after a grueling soccer match alongside George who kicked him with a soccer ball (Jonathan Lipnicki), Stuart (Michael J. Fox) gets even more downhearted after George’s airplane gets broken in an accident because of him. However, Stuart’s dad (Hugh Laurie) tells him that for every Little, there is a “silver lining”, or a solution to every problem.

On his way home from school, Stuart encounters a female yellow canary named Margalo (Melanie Griffith) that is pursued by a giant falcon (James Woods). He drives her to safety. In a matter of time, Margalo, the canary, and Stuart have become best friends. But, Margalo has a secret. The falcon pursuing her was a crime lord, and he soon catches up to her, reminding her that if she doesn’t find an object of wealth soon, the sanctuary he promised her will be called off. But Margalo can’t seem to concentrate on her assignment, as she begins to harbour tender feelings for Stuart.

The Falcon eventually comes back, this time threatening to kill Stuart if she doesn’t retrieve a wealthy object. Margalo sadly takes Stuart’s mom’s (Geena Davis) ring. When the family sees it is missing, Stuart thinks it has fallen down the sink. He offers to go get it, nearly succeeding. When he is in danger, Margalo saves him, and he thanks her, making her feel even more guilty, so she decides to leave. When Stuart can’t find her, he assumes she has been kidnapped. He leaves on a quest with Snowbell (Nathan Lane) the cat, but not before setting up a plan with George.

At the park square, Stuart is congratulated by his family and Margalo and Snowbell reunites with them as well. That evening, Margalo leaves with the other birds to migrate south, but not before saying goodbye to her friends, including Snowbell, who is at the point of tears. Stuart says the silver lining is that she’ll be back in the spring. Stuart’s baby sister says her first word, or words, “Bye bye, birdie.”

At a star party, Amateur astronomer Leo Biederman (Wood) stumbles upon unusual object near the stars Mizar and Alcor, and alerts professional astronomer Dr. Marcus Wolf (Charles Martin Smith) at a local observatory. After discovering the object is a comet and working out its orbit, Wolf realizes that the comet will impact Earth, but dies in a car accident on his way down from the observatory before he can alert the world.

A year later, MSNBC reporter Jenny Lerner (Leoni) researches the resignation of the United States Secretary of the Treasury and his connection to an “Ellie.” She soon discovers that Ellie is not a mistress but “E.L.E.”, an acronym for “extinction-level event”. Because of Lerner’s investigation, President of the United States Tom Beck (Freeman) announces the grim facts: The comet—named Wolf-Biederman—is 7 miles (11 km) wide, large enough to destroy civilization if it strikes Earth. He also reveals that The United States and Russia have been secretely constructing the largest spacecraft ever in orbit: The Messiah. They plan to send the Messiah to destroy the comet, using nuclear weapons. Life changes drastically worldwide, and Leo and Lerner both become celebrities.

After intercepting and landing on the comet, The Messiah’s crew (Duvall and others) plants the bombs into the comet’s surface, but one crew member dies and another is seriously injured. When the bombs are detonated Messiah is damaged and contact with Earth is lost. The comet is not destroyed; instead, it splits into two chunks, one a mile and a half wide (named “Biederman”) and the other six miles wide (“Wolf”), but both still world-threatening.

The film closes with Beck speaking to a large crowd in front of the under-reconstruction United States Capitol, in which he urges the nation to continue its recovery and efforts to rebuild.
