Joan makes an appearance as the glamorous international relationship guru, in town to launch her new book and teach a selected few the art of bagging a millionaire.. Joan spent a few days in the Netherlands filming her scenes and the entire cast and crew were in awe of her.. The dialogue in the film is dutch, but Joan's scenes are in English.. The film was a box office hit in the Netherlands and even won The Golden Film Award, which recognises domestic  box office achievement in the Netherlands.

Screenwriter Mischa Alexander won The Golden Calf Award at the 2004 Netherlands Film Festival, for best screenplay... All in all a charming film that is worth a look, with Joan as an added bonus...
