Overview
Craig Schwartz ('john cusack') is a struggling street puppeteer. In order to make some money, Craig takes a job as a filing clerk. One day he accidentally discovers a door... a portal into the brain of John Malkovich (played by 'john malkovich')! For 15 minutes, he experiences the ultimate head trip—HE is being John Malkovich! Then he's dumped onto the New Jersey turnpike! With his beautiful office mate Maxine ('catherine keener') and his pet-obsessed wife ('cameron diaz'), they hatch a plan to let others into John's brain for just $200 a trip. See what all the critics are talking about.

Easter Eggs
From the disc's main menu, go to the "Language" section. There you will hear the song "Amphibian" by Björk in its entirety while you are making your scene selections. Several other menu screens on the disc also feature complete tracks from the movie's soundtrack.

On the second page of the special features you can find a menu entry entitled "Don't enter here, there's nothing here." Sure enough, selecting it leads to a screen that reads "There is nothing here, press enter to return."
