The story of Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle movie
After rescuing U.S. Marshal Ray Carter (Robert Patrick) in Mongolia, the Angels: Natalie Cook (Cameron Diaz) Dylan Sanders (Drew Barrymore) and Alex Munday (Lucy Liu) together with John Bosley’s adoptive brother Jimmy Bosley (Bernie Mac) are sent to recover H.A.L.O. (Hidden Alias List Operation) titanium rings stolen from the United States Department of Justice which can display the people listed in the witness protection program. DOJ official William Rose Bailey (Bruce Willis) and a protected witness, Alan Caulfield (Eric Bogosian) are among those killed. At Caulfield’s house in San Bernardino, the Angels track his assassin Randy Emmers (Rodrigo Santoro) to a beach where they meet with former Angel Madison Lee (Demi Moore). During the Coal Bowl motorcycle race, Emmers targets another witness named Max Petroni (Shia LaBeouf), but is killed by the Thin Man (Crispin Glover). Inside Emmers’ pocket, the Angels discover the photos of Caulfield, Max, and, surprisingly, Dylan, under her birth name, Helen Zaas.
Dylan reveals that she is a protected witness after sending her former boyfriend, Irish mob leader Seamus O’Grady (Justin Theroux) to prison. O’Grady has since targeted those who wronged him, including Dylan and Max, whose parents O’Grady killed. Max is sent to the home of Bosley’s mother (Ja’net Dubois) for his protection. At a monastery, the Angels learn about the Thin Man’s past from the Mother Superior (Carrie Fisher), who reveals his name, Anthony. Afterward, the Angels track O’Grady’s mob at San Pedro and manage to get the rings, but O’Grady threatens Dylan with the murder of everyone she loves. While Natalie attends her boyfriend, Peter Kominsky (Luke Wilson)’s high school reunion at Hermosa Beach and Alex returns home to find her action star boyfriend-under-timeout, Jason Gibbons (Matt LeBlanc) telling her awestruck father (John Cleese) about her exploits (only for him to mistake her for being a hooker), Dylan leaves the Angels and heads to Mexico. When Natalie, Bosley and Alex notice her letter, they read her reasons for leaving them. While Alex is upset by this, Natalie understands why Dylan fled to protect them. When she asks about O’Grady’s break out from jail, Charlie reveals someone had him released on good behavior. While in Mexico keeping a low profile, Dylan is convinced to return after seeing an apparition of former Angel Kelly Garrett (Jaclyn Smith).
Natalie and Alex deduce that Carter is a part of O’Grady’s scheme after seeing him return Bosley’s keys without any pain, since he had earlier claimed to have broken his ribs, which is now proved to have been a lie. Following him, the two witness him being shot to death by Madison, the true mastermind behind all of this. Though Dylan arrives to back the group, the Angels are shot by Madison, who takes the rings, though they survive by having worn Kevlar vests beforehand. At the base, Charlie through the speakers reprimands Madison for what she’s done. He confronts her for endangering the lives of her former teammates. By the time that he had rescued them, the girls were in critical condition and Madison was kicked out of the Angels for it. Madison responds by pulling out her gold guns and shooting the speaker. The Angels realize that Madison, with the protection of O’Grady, is going to sell the rings to the Antonioni Crime Family, the Tanaka Yakuza, and the Diablo Cartel at the Hollywood Walk of Fame, where Jason’s film’s premiere is about to commence. The Angels set the three groups up to be arrested by the FBI instead, while they confront Madison and O’Grady. Anthony comes to the Angels’ aid, where it’s revealed he’s in love with Dylan and is doing his part to protect her. O’Grady kills Anthony. He continues to fight Dylan, and almost succeeds in killing her, but she manages to kick glass into his eyes blinding him, which then causes him to lose his footing and fall to his death. The Angels then proceed to fight Madison all the way to an abandoned theater, where they kick her into a chamber filled with gas, where Madison inadvertently triggers an explosion upon firing her gun at them, killing her.
The Angels attend the premiere where they learn that Mama Bosley is adopting Max. Peter postpones his engagement with Natalie by buying for them a puppy named Spike while Alex terminates her timeout with Jason. The Angels celebrate their victory together with Bosley.

Production of Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle
Charlie’s Angels: Animated Adventures, an animated prequel series explain how the Angels got there and their mission, concluded by the very introduction of the film.
The Seamus O’Grady prison introduction scene is a direct reference to Robert De Niro’s prison-set introduction in Cape Fear.
The scene where the Angels go to investigate the body of Agent Caufield dressed as crime-scene professionals is an homage/parody of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, complete with the theme “Who Are You” by The Who.
The song “Feel Good Time” is the film’s main track, and is performed by Pink. Whenever Seamus O’Grady (Justin Theroux) appears, he is accompanied by Bernard Hermann’s theme from Cape Fear.
The Thin Man character perhaps pays homage to the Thin Man in 1927 German Expressionist film Metropolis, directed by Fritz Lang. In the film, Thin Man is ordered by Joh Frederson, master of Metropolis, to spy on his son Freder.
