Commitment: for some, it's the scariest word in the English language. In Bob Byington's wry new comedy, this fear of decision-making is taken to absurd and hilarious extremes. In this semi-dystopian tale of the near future, couples who want babies, but hate the idea of constant loving care, can order an "Infinity Baby"—an actual three-month-old human child that has been genetically modified to never age and never cry, and only needs a feeding and diaper change once a week. One of the salesmen who provides this service is Ben (Kieran Culkin), an equally commitment-phobic person who serially dates women until he gets bored, whereupon he introduces them to his hyper-critical mother (Megan Mullally), who always scares the girlfriends away. In this idyllic Neverland for the millennial generation, wrenches are thrown in the form of Ben's latest girlfriend, Allison (Trieste Kelly Dunn), who is wise to his manipulations, and an Infinity Baby that is rejected by its clients, throwing the whole operation into chaos. Writer Onur Turkel's crackling, witty script keeps the action moving at a brisk pace in this scathing satire. Featuring an inspired performance by actor Nick Offerman, as the mad genius behind the Stepford babies. Infinity Baby is a bracing antidote to slacker culture, featuring grown-up laughs about those who refuse to grow up.
