40 Days and Nights Movie Review

Admittedly, I am a lover of low budget cinema, and it is time for an end of the world mock-diasaster film, from the folks at The Asylum comes 40 Days and Nights. No this is NOT 40 Days and 40 Nights!
The world is going to get "Biblically" wet and the film begins appropriately with a tidal wave in the desert, sweeping away four unsuspecting youngsters out on a jeep off-road ride.
40 Days and Nights is family film, and is also very basic, due to the sadly lackluster CGI coupled with the intrinsic, for the most part, lack of direction for the actors. The scenes were just thrown together rag-tag and strictly by the book, with a mixture of the big budget 2012 type thrown in on a micro scale. While the CGI is getting better on some of The Asylum films, 40 Days and Nights sets them back a few years, lower quality and obviously rushed.
The one redeeming quality, and it is a big one, for those of my readers with families and small children, there is no, zero, zilch, in the way of objectionable material. No curse words, no blood, nothing, 40 Days and Nights could easily play on a Disney Channel or Hallmark Network. This fact, sadly, makes it rather boring for adults.
Wait, my audience asks, I did not wax poetically with regards to the plot, haha, figure it out, it is The Asylum, low budget, disaster film. While I can recommend 40 Days and Nights for families with children, I have to give it a barely rent 4 out of 10 as it is one of the weaker efforts in 2012.
