"INFINITELY POLAR BEAR stands as a reassurance that even in imperfect households, everything can still turn out all right. The key, maybe, is in laughing at what's truly ridiculous, and in laughing your way through what hurts, too."
— Village Voice
"Ruffalo, a master of rumpled befuddlement, finds his signature role here-it can't be overstated how deftly he eases into the tricky creation, a blue-blooded slacker who aches when the world won't hug him back."
— Time Out
"The film boasts two of the best child performances so far this year, and Saldana has never been tougher or more vulnerable. Then there's Ruffalo, who demonstrates again why he may be the best actor of his generation."
— Boston Globe
"INFINITELY POLAR BEAR is a much-needed reminder that the realm of film is still a place to encounter something other than comic-book scenarios."
