The film is set 23 years after the first film, in June 2008, and Gordon Gekko has just been released from prison. Despite his initial attempts to warn Wall Street of the forthcoming economic downturn and stock market crash, no one believes him due to his reduced standing in the financial world. Gekko decides to re-focus his attention on rebuilding his relationship with his estranged daughter, Winnie. Due to their time apart, and the fact that Winnie blames Gekko for her brother Rudy’s suicide, she avoids any contact with him. At the same time, the mentor of young Wall Street trader Jacob unexpectedly dies, and Jacob suspects his hedge fund manager of being involved in the death. Jacob, who is Winnie’s fiance, seeks revenge and agrees to Gekko’s offer of help, in return for which Jacob agrees to help Gekko with Winnie.

While the novel is told by a third-person narrator in strict chronological order, the film uses voice-over narration (the voice of Mildred). The story is framed by the questioning of Mildred by police after they discover the body of her second husband, Monte Beragon.
The film in noir fashion opens with Beragon (Scott) being shot. He murmurs the name “Mildred” as he collapses and dies. The police are led to believe that the murderer is restaurant owner Mildred Pierce (Crawford), who under interrogation confesses to the crime. She then relates her life story in flashback.
We see housewife Mildred unhappily married to a newly unemployed Bert Pierce (Bruce Bennett). He was originally a real estate partner of Wally Fay (Carson), who propositions Mildred after learning that she and Bert are about to divorce. Mildred keeps custody of her two daughters: Veda (Blyth) and Kay (Jo Anne Marlowe).
Mildred’s principal goal is to provide for eldest daughter Veda, who longs for possessions the family cannot afford. Mildred needs a job and the best she can find is as a waitress â€” a fact she hides from Veda. One day, Veda gives their maid Lottie (Butterfly McQueen) Mildred’s waitress uniform, thinking nothing of it, until Mildred admits that she is a waitress, infuriating Veda, who thinks it a lowly employ.
When Veda takes up with the scheming Monty, a showdown ensues at the beach house where the film began. We discover what really happened: that Veda, furious over Monte’s unwillingness to take her seriously, is the one who shoots him. Mildred can cover for her daughter no more, and Veda is led off to jail.

At seventeen, Veronica “Ronnie” Miller remains as rebellious and distant as she was the day after her parents’ ugly divorce and father’s subsequent relocation to Georgia three years ago. Once a classical piano prodigy under the tutelage of her father, Steve, Ronnie now rejects the instrument in favor of partying with her friends and has not spoken to her father since he left.
Now, Steve is given the chance to reconnect with his estranged daughter when her mother, Kim, sends the rebellious teen and her younger brother, Jonah, to spend the summer with him. Steve, a former Juilliard professor and concert pianist, now lives a quiet life in Tybee Island, the small Georgia beach town where he grew up, working on a stained glass window for the local church to replace one lost in a fire.
Upon arrival, Ronnie is miserable, hostile and defensive toward all those around her, including handsome, popular Will Blakelee – until, after both she and Will become involved in protecting a Loggerhead Sea Turtle nest, she discovers he is deeper than she believed. As Ronnie falls in love with Will, she also manages to bond with Steve through the one thing they have in common- music.

Spoiled, strong-willed New Orleans belle Julie Marsden (Bette Davis) is engaged to banker Preston ‘Pres’ Dillard (Henry Fonda). In retaliation for Pres refusing to drop his work and accompany her while she shops for a dress, she orders a brazen red one for the most important ball of the year, one where white dresses for unmarried women are expected. All of Julie’s friends are shocked, but no one can convince her to give up her whim.
Pres escorts Julie to the Olympus Ball, where their entrance is met by the disdainful stares of all present. She finally realizes the magnitude of her social blunder and begs Pres to take her away, but by this time, he is implacable. He makes her dance with him. All the other couples gradually leave the floor, finally leaving them alone and isolated. When the orchestra conductor stops playing, Pres orders him to continue and they finish the dance.
Afterwards, Pres takes his leave of Julie, implicitly breaking their engagement. In a final bit of spite, Julie slaps him in the face by way of farewell. Aunt Belle Massey (Fay Bainter) urges her to go after Pres and beg his forgiveness, but she refuses, arrogantly confident that he will return to her. Instead, he goes north on business. Julie shuts herself up in her house and refuses to see visitors.
Then something happens that overshadows everything else. As Pres and Dr. Livingstone had feared, a deadly epidemic of yellow fever sweeps the city, as it had numerous times before. Pres comes down with it and, like all other victims, is to be quarantined on an island. Amy prepares to go along to care for him, risking her own life, but Julie stops her. She tells the Northerner that she doesn’t know how to deal with the slaves and Southerners on the island. She begs to go in her place, as an act of redemption. Amy agrees.

In the tranquil town of Timberline, a 900 pound grizzly bear named Boog (Martin Lawrence) enjoys a captive existence. He spends his day as the star attraction of the town’s nature show and spends his nights living the life of luxury in the garage of park ranger Beth (Debra Messing) who raised him since he was a cub in a poor captive state.
One day, maniacal hunter Shaw (Gary Sinise) drives into town with the one-antlered mule deer Elliot (Ashton Kutcher) strapped to the hood of his truck. Boog wakes him as the two scream in terror. With Boog reluctant to intervene, Elliot begs to for help to escape. At the last minute and against his better judgment, Boog frees Elliot before Shaw could go after him. Boog never expects to see his “buddy” again.
Elliot follows Boog home and finds him sleeping in the garage and starts to throw rabbits at the window. Elliot tells Boog the he is intent on returning the favor by “freeing” him from his garage captivity. Elliot introduces Boog to a world of sweet temptations outside of the garage that he has never known. When the grizzly’s true instincts begin to emerge, events quickly spiral out of control as the two ransack the town’s food store. Elliot escapes before Boog is caught by a friend of Beth, police officer Gordy (Gordon Tootoosis).
The following day, Boog leads a rampage against the hunters, sending them running after McSquizzy blows up their trucks. Shaw returns for a final battle. Elliot takes a bullet meant for Boog, enraging the bear who ties up Shaw with his own gun. Boog finds that Elliot survived the blast, only losing his second antler in the fight. Beth returns to take Boog back home, but instead he stays with his friends. She realizes that the bear is home in the forest.

Three weeks after an operation in which United States and Russian special forces captured the tyrannical leader of Kazakhstan, General Ivan Radek, U.S. President James Marshall announces in a speech in Moscow that America will undertake a new offensive against terrorism. His visit complete, the President heads home to Washington, D.C. aboard Air Force One.
Secret Service agent Gibbs kills three fellow agents once the plane is airborne and opens the on-board weapons locker. Soviet neo-nationalists, led by Ivan Korshunov, had boarded the plane posing as a news crew who had been cleared to fly on Air Force One, the same news crew that was later found dead. They seize the weapons and search the plane for Marshall, killing many passengers. The President is evacuated to an escape pod by numerous Secret Service agents, all of whom are gunned down. The terrorists assume he had escaped in the deployed capsule, but Marshall actually remained onboard in hiding. The remaining passengers (White House Chief of Staff Lloyd Shepherd, military advisor Major Caldwell, National Security Advisor Jack Doherty, Marshall’s wife and daughter, and others) are held hostage in the conference room while the cockpit crew locks the door and prepares to land at Ramstein Air Base. The terrorists break in and kill the non-compliant pilots, taking control of the plane and aborting the landing at Ramstein.
Kazakh MiG-29 fighter jets loyal to Radek soon reach Air Force One and inflict serious damage to its engines. US F-15 fighters intercept and fend off the hostile aircraft, shooting down several. Although one of the US fighter pilots flies into the path of a missile to save Air Force One, the plane is too heavily damaged to land. Air Force Pararescue hastily arranges an air-to-air zip-line rescue from a C-130 Hercules, but before the evacuation can be completed the damaged plane begins a rapid descent with Marshall, his family, Caldwell, Shepherd, and Gibbs still aboard. Marshall insists on evacuating his family and the wounded Shepherd before himself. Once it is Marshall’s turn to leave, though, Gibbs, actually a mole by the neo-nationalists, drops all pretense and kills Caldwell and the parajumper, attempting to be the last one off and leave the president to die. Marshall fights with Gibbs and escapes on the zip-line, leaving Gibbs aboard the doomed plane as it crashes into the Caspian Sea. The C-130 announces, “Liberty 2-4 is changing call-signs… Liberty 2-4 is now Air Force One!”, indicating the president is aboard, and the film ends with it flying safely away with the First Family aboard and a fighter jet escort.
