With stunning sets and to- die-for couture, this glitzy reboot has a lot going for it. Yet it’s nowhere near as fun as the over-thetop original. Nickelodeon vet Elizabeth Gillies (above left, with Nathalie Kelley) gets in some good jabs as conniving Fallon Carrington, but much of the acting is underwhelming, and the characters’ machinations are less interesting than what they’re wearing.
