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.

Reminded me of the 1980s
I've just watched this film and I' surprised to find it was released in 2003. While watching it (before knowing the release date) I felt I was watching something out of the 1980s. Even though it may be contemporary, this film already has something "aged" about it. Its not exactly hackneyed, but there is something about the young people and the way they talk and act (and what they wear) that feels dated already. What especially struck me were the hairstyles and the clothing, some of the expressions and some of the mock innocence. These feel just too good, to tame, or too "innocent" to be credible in a movie in the 21st Century. The usual moral story, one supposes, and this time around just a bit too heavy-handed for my own personal taste. The stated gay interest or gay angle is very oblique.
