Infinity Baby, 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 (Nick Offerman), is able to offer a service for aspiring parents who never want to leave the baby bubble — infants that do not age.
Ben (Kieran Culkin), 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 (Kevin Corrigan) and Malcolm (Martin Starr), 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.
Infinity Baby is another funny voyage into absurdsville from director Bob Byington. Ostensibly about the scientific “innovation” of a breed of babies that never age, the satirical premise allows Byington to cleverly explore the frequently dysfunctional dynamics of dating, parenting, corporate shenanigans, consumerism, and work relationships. Does having a baby automatically confer some level of maturity? Will Ben’s mom, the sarcastic and demanding Hester (Megan Mullally), approve of Ben’s new girlfriend (Trieste Dunn)? Will Malcolm recover from a disastrous accident with kitchen cleaner? The answers to these questions and more await in Byington’s heady and hilarious potpourri.
