I enjoy Leonard Maltin in the few documentaries I've seen him showing up, and he does a good job here. The documentary part of this is nice, even though it's a bit short. I'd love to see a proper documentary on Dick Tracy, but I'll take what I can get.

Warren Beatty's part in this confused me, I looked it up online and it seems like it was made so he could keep the rights to the character. And now it all makes sense. If this had been a regular documentary, they might have lost the rights to the character, but including Dick Tracy as a character in this, they make it a movie rather than a doc.

Not too much time is spent on Beatty pretending to be Tracy, but it's still too much. The gag where he is commenting on Beatty's performance was predictable. They also spent to much time just showing clips from previous Tracy movies.

All in all, there's no reason to see this if you are not a die hard fan of either the character, or Beatty. It served its purpose (letting them keep the rights), and there's not much worth in it besides that.
