Summary
Craig Schwartz 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! For 15 minutes, he experiences the ultimate head trip--He is John Malkovich! Then he's dumped onto the New Jersey turnpike. With his beautiful office mate Maxine and his pet-obsessed wife, they hatch a plan to let others into John's brain for just $200 a trip
