    Mr. Greene (Norm of the North)

    Mr. Greene
    [to Vera, after Norm roars in his face] "Vera, get my lawyer. I'm gonna copyright that roar and make it a new ringtone..."
    Gender: Male
    Type: Over-the-Top Businessman
    Age: Around 50
    Species: Human
    Portrayed by: Ken Jeong
    Status: Unknown
    Media of origin: Norm of the North


    Mr. Greene is the so-called "main antagonist" of the critically panned 2016 animated film Norm of the North. He is voiced by Ken Jeong, known for his role as Senor Chang from the NBC comedy series Community.

    Why He Doesn't Deserve to Be CEO of Greene Homes

    1. He is an extremely selfish villain and barely serves any real purpose in the film despite being the "main antagonist".
    2. His plan is very contrived, dumb and it makes no sense at all since the idea of buying houses in the Arctic is very unreasonable (yet it still worked somehow, all because of Norm being incompetent).
      • First of all, why would anyone think that it's a great idea to build condos in the Arctic when the ice caps are unstable and melting due to climate change? Second, if the condos were built and were destroyed by the ice caps, then the condo owners can sue Mr. Greene and win the case.
    3. Despite being the "antagonist", he only seems to exist just to make the plot of the film “work” and just so the film could have a main antagonist. However, he fails at this because he is the typical movie villain with an ecological message who wants to alter the ecosystem because money comes first.
    4. Much like Chester V from Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, he has a too thin and cartoonish design that clashes with the aesthetics of the film.
    5. He moves way too cartoony and over-the-top. It looks like he's moving like a character from a 1930's Fleischer Studios short or a Warner Bros. cartoon, which unintentionally looks more laughable than it should be.
      • His energetic animation clashes with the other characters, who are more stilted and realistic.
    6. Sometimes, he barely receives any screen-time despite being the "main antagonist".
    7. Plot hole: When did he kidnap Norm's grandfather and take him to New York City, and if he has nothing to do with the Arctic in the past, why did he catch him?
    8. His voice acting by Ken Jeong is poorly directed, like in one scene where he is yelling at Vera and it sounds like the actor was far away from the microphone. Jeong also tries to do an American accent, but it comes off as rather phoned in and awkward at best, since he sounds very hip when doing his performance. Along with that, his New York accent sounds incredibly fake and makes Jeong sound nothing like he does in other media. Keep in mind that Jeong also played Senor Chang from Community, in which his performance and his character are better than Mr. Greene, which means wasted talent.

    The Only Redeeming Quality

    1. His awkward and cartoonish movements can make for unintentional comedy to some viewers because of how jarring and slightly bizarre it looks.
      • Speaking of unintentional comedy, his quote "Vera, get my lawyer. I'm gonna copyright that roar and make it a new ringtone..." is actually very funny.
