Appointment for Love is a neatly constructed piece of bright entertainment. Producer Bruce Manning, who also collaborated on the script with Felix Jackson [from an original by Ladislas Bus-Fekete], points up the romantic adventure while injecting numerous refreshing episodes to the oft-told tale of newlywed problems.

Charles Boyer, a successful playwright, suave with the femmes, falls in love with Margaret Sullavan, seriously immersed in the practice of medicine and with very novel and unusual ideas about marriage and continuance of separate careers. Sullavan takes a separate apartment in the same building with Boyer, explaining this unusual procedure in difference in time schedules of their work.

Situation created upsets Boyer, with conflict between the pair raging in merriest mood, including setups for jealousies on both sides.

William Seiter paces the direction with an expert hand, deftly timing the smacko laugh lines and situations for brightest effect. Boyer handles his assignment with utmost assurance. Sullavan provides both charm and ability to her role of the serious medic who finally turns romantic.
