From Back Cover:

Craig Schwartz (John Cusack) is nearing the end of his string. A gifted street puppeteer, Craig nonetheless is coming up empty-cupped. In order to make some money, Craig's pet-obsessed wife (Cameron Diaz) encourages him to put his nimble fingers to good use and take a job as a filing clerk. One day he accidentally discovers a door... a portal into the mind of John Malkovich (actually played by John Malkovich). For 15 minutes, he experiences the ultimate head trip - HE is John Malkovich! Then he's dumped out onto the New Jersey turnpike. With his beautiful office mate Maxine (Catherine Keener) they hatch a plan to let others into Malkovich for just $200 a trip. But this is only the beginning. See the movie all the critics are talking about.

My Comments:

If you like weird-ass movies, this is one for you. There's really no describing just how bizarre this film is, you just have to see for yourself.
