Storyline

Ten years after her failed marriage, recently fired mother Ellis 'El' Vermeulen and preteen son Thijs get peanuts while her ex spends everything on new flame Mirella. She finally takes Joane Collins' amoral course 'How To Marry A Millionaire'. She actually gets socialites interested, including hunk Gijs, a fine substitute dad for Thijs. Of course there is a catch.

Can't believe this has not been picked up internationally yet. Could be called HOW TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE.

Good story, well crafted, and some hilarious jokes that come too close to the truth of the dating rules. Ever heard of the book THE RULES: HOW TO FIND A MAN AND GET HIM BEFORE THE ALTAR ? it looks like Joan Collins teaches from those rules. A must see for anyone over 35 and desperate to find the right husband. Linda de Mol delivers a decent performance (I never was a fan of her but do like her in this film) as a single mother desperate to give her child a better future. When her friends signs her up for a course "how to marry a rich man" she hates the idea at first, but when her ex-husband lets her down again by not paying for his son's soccer camp (the poor kid is left alone at the bus stop), she does sign up for the course. Joan Collins sees a next Cinderella in her. "good bone structure"...
