*** [[spoiler: The low-income housing being constructed wasn't actually being done out of spite, it was so people could afford a decent place to live. The construction started long before the events of the film. In fact, Hartounian's establishing character moment is when he deliberately ''loses'' a card game (at the construction site) to an employee who needed the money to support his family and is shown treating his employees with respect and generosity. Hartounian's conflict with the "snobby" country club members started when said members were protesting over the destruction of a long-gone estate, claiming that an about-to-fall-down carriage house (nothing more than four walls and virtually no roof and a plastic lawn chair) and a brook (actually a storm drain) were worthy of historical preservation. Never mind the fact that they were repeatedly trespassing on his property and he actually tries to explain all this reasonably. He only joins the club at the insistence of his daughter who was friends with Miffy and wanted to climb the social ladder (she later realizes she was wrong and reconciles with her father). When Hartounian and Club President Chandler Young meet, they try to be amicable to one another and agree to let their lawyers handle matters. The conflict didn't escalate until after winning all the bids at a club "slave auction" for charity and putting them to work at his construction site to show them what an honest-day's work is like. The club members then disrupt his construction project and business out of spite over the charity stunt using their connections to the city to cut off the his company office's power and utilities and taking his construction permits away. That's when Hartounian bought their club and turned it into a garish amusement park and act obnoxious as a legal way to pressure ''them'' to stop. At that point, ''Chandler'' hires a (comically incompetent) hitman to kill Hartounian, first with a car bomb (which destroy's Chanlder's Rolls Royce) and an exploding golf ball during a tournament (which literally blows up in their faces thanks to a certain gopher).]]

*** However, unlike Czervik, Hartounian is more down-to-earth, has a daughter he loves (and raises her to ''not'' be a SpoiledBrat), spends time with his employees and constructs low-income housing for altruistic reasons, not because he wants to make a profit. Apart from his "sweet-talking" lawyer, he also clearly doesn't rely on a Moose and Rocko to handle "debt collection". And say what you will about Smails, but at least he didn't abuse his legal powers to put Danny in prison on trumped-up charges nor disrupt Czervik's construction business, nor did he hire a [[spoiler: hitman, making Chandler Young more of an outright villain.]]
