The Little Mermaid (out May 25) is good enough. I don’t think it’s any better than the 1989 animated original but in trying to judge on its own merits, this live-action version provides light entertainment for younger crowds. Daveed Diggs is MVP with his scene-stealing voice performance as Sebastian the sarcastic, frustrated crab. Songs are beautifully sung too. Grade: B.
