Bob Byington’s pointed and droll dissection of contemporary life and relationships, involves babies that don’t age, emotionally stunted men, and a unique technique for breaking up with unwanted girlfriends. Owing to a genetic mix-up involving stem cell research, the recently founded Infinity Baby, run by the garrulous Neo, is able to offer a service for aspiring parents who never want to leave the baby bubble – infants that do not age. Ben, a serial monogamist who says he wants to find the right woman but is always looking for the next one, and his half-competent pals Larry and Malcolm, are hired to market the service to those keen to nurture. While Ben swipes through his smart phone looking for the next partner, Malcolm and Larry consider taking on the maintenance of one of the timeless toddlers.
“The skillfully obtuse Infinity Baby withdraws from a usual comic routine and commits to its outrageous nature wholeheartedly.” – Kristy Strouse, Film Inquiry
“It’s an extremely funny and caustic film, but when it tempers that with moments of humanity, that is where the film shines.” – Josh Kupecki, Austin Chronicle
