Loser puppeteer Craig (John Cusack, sans eighties boombox) tries to cheat on his wife Lotte (a dowdified Cameron Diaz) with Maxine Lund (Catherine Keener), but Maxine gives him the Heisman. Then Lotte ends up falling in love with Maxine — and Maxine falls in love back, but only when Lotte is inside John Malkovich’s body. (You know, just your typical chick flick plot.) All the men are trying to cheat on something — their spouse, death, whatever. But the two women — spoiler alert! — decide to leave all those cheatin’ male hearts behind and start over together. The ultimate feminist fuck-you twist? Maxine got knocked up by Malkovich while he was possessed by Lotte, so the two ladies kinda made a baby together too.
