What is Sound Mixing in a film?

I know what Sound Editing is.

But I can't figure out what Sound Mixing is.

I can't tell the difference between good Sound Mixing and bad Sound Mixing.

    mixing for film and television is a process during the post-production stage of a moving image program by which a multitude of recorded sounds are combined into one or more channels. In the process, the source signals' level, frequency content, dynamics and panoramic position are commonly manipulated and effects such as reverberation might be added.

    The process takes place on a mix stage, typically in a studio or theater, once the picture elements are edited into a final version. Normally the engineer will mix four main audio elements: speech (dialogue, ADR, voice-overs, etc.), ambience (or atmosphere), sound effects, and music.
