All Tess Trueheart (GLENNE HEADLY) wants is to settle down to a quiet life with her boyfriend, detective Dick Tracy (Warren Beatty). But there's something pretty rotten going on in town, with someone pretty rotten behind it, and Tracy has his hands full with the likes of villain Big Boy Caprice (AL PACINO) and with the almost irresistable Breathless Mahoney (Madonna). Based on a comic book. Internet Movie Database
