Row Your Boat is a drama about a recently released ex-convict trying to correct his life written and directed by Sollace Mitchel. It was released in 1998, and in 2001 on home video. The film stars Jon Bon Jovi of rock fame, Bai Ling, and William Forsythe. Its title is taken from the English nursery rhyme "Row, Row, Row Your Boat".

Bon Jovi plays Jamey Meadows, a man newly released from prison who has found himself homeless on the crazy streets of New York City. Slowly, he must build his life up from the gutter. Resisting constant offers from his brother, played by William Forsythe (Dick Tracy, The Rock, Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo) to rejoin the insidious world of crime, Meadows takes a menial job as a door to door census worker.

Critical reception[edit]

Because the film was released independently, it pretty much flew under the radar with professional critics,[1] though most home viewers seem to like it despite its cliche story and acting.[2] It did however bring home an Audience Choice Award for Best Feature at the Stony Brook Film Festival in 1999.[3]
