- Advertisement -

What is the use of having so much money? is the question that the protagonist tries to answer in Loot (All money)the Apple TV+ series that chronicles the life of mega-millionaire Molly Novak, who after the divorce he arrives at the office of his foundation to avoid boredom and depressionand in search of a meaning to her existence as a rich woman who has sadness.

The series begins by showing the perfect life of Molly (Maya Rudolph), surrounded by the luxurious tastes provided by her husband, a technological guru with a fortune more or less comparable to the GDP of some medium-sized country.

until discovers that the man she was married to for 20 years is cheating on her with a woman many years her junior: “He wasn’t even born when we graduated from the University”, Molly rebukes him, “Actually he was a year old”, he replies.

In Loot (All the money), the protagonist has 87 billion dollars to squander.

a lot of money to spend

That’s where the story begins loot: after a scandalous and mediatic divorce, she meets 87 billion dollars, gets depressed and goes touring how much party there is around the world.

One day, after one of his many hangovers, he receives a call from a foundation that bears his name, because it is his! even though she didn’t know it. Like so many other companies that will appear.

Along with her assistant Nicholas (Joel Kim Booster), Molly shows up at the charity where she meets the rest of the characters.

There they are Sofía Salinas (MJ Rodríguez), an idealist who manages the destinies of the foundation with conviction; Howard (Ron Funches) a cousin whom she hardly knows but “accommodated” in a position at some point that she does not remember; Arthur (Nat Faxon) the recently divorced accountant and devoted father; and some others that are discovered with the passing of the chapters.

Life dedicated to frivolity

Since her arrival at the office, far from acting like the owner of the foundation, Molly seems more like the mascot, an attraction of the office that everyone has to prop up so that she stops getting into trouble and behaving so frivolously.

And he makes the effort resigning parties, events, massages and even his “traditional 11 hours of sleep”although it can not avoid the occasional “skid”.

It could be said that there is nothing new up to here: a millionaire out of the tupperware in which she lives interacting with “ordinary people”.

But just as the novels have spent decades and decades repeating the formula of the rich boy who falls in love with the poor girl (or its many possible combinations); the frivolous rich man who one day discovers that outside of his little world there is a world that has little to do with the one he knows, also continues to function.

The best of loot are the dialogues and the cast headed by Maya Rudolph. The former Saturday Night Live shows her talent for comedy again, without the need to exaggerate; from a drunkenness to the most subtle gesture are in the right measure of it.

Although the series is a comedy full of humor and sarcasm, it also has a dramatic aspect, at times well handled but at others bordering on self-help. Both the latter and the constant emphasis on political correctness -although sometimes it is done with humor- are the weakest points of the series, which in any case continues to seek its harmony.

Sometimes common places are attractive precisely for that reason, because they are common. And that balance between what is expected and what is outstanding, makes Loot have everything needed to become a comedy that almost everyone can enjoy.

Created by Alan Yang and Matt Hubbard -with whom Rudolph had already worked on the underrated Forever-, loot it has 8 episodes available (premieres every Friday) of the 10 from the first season and has just been renewed for a second.
