When they are behind bars, Vincent told Shane that he can't believe that he was caught by the police because of a joint smoking. He said that it was his first time to smoke a joint and that he even don't smoke, where in their first meet up with Shane while telling the story of his trip to France in 1997 he was smoking and you can see that he was kind a pro with it.

Two Irish lads 'meet cute' in this story of straight and gay roommates that neatly skirts any real peril in favor of an emotional pot of gold for the two main players. With more than it's share of plot contrivances - piling coincidence upon coincidence - it's often tough to stick with the story but the playing of it's two stars Michale Legge as Shane (with his open-faced honesty and good looks) and Allen Leech as Vincent(smirking rakishly and charming us in the bargain) make this a ride worth taking - even as it detours into Dublin drug-running to add a modicum of tension. Amy Shields is the gal pal (relentlessly billed as luminous by the producers, she lives up to the attribution) that is beloved by both (for different reasons, natch). But film's fairy tale fade-out is less than convincing, despite the winning performances and brisk direction.
