Like the last film this also is self aware and makes fun of certain things in Christmas films. not as much as the last one but still.
- Maude the II and company going out to party the night of the Dude's heist is a parody of Herold and Kumar Christmas and the night before
- the Romance Between Maude the II and Jerry is a parody of romantic Christmas movies in general
- Jared Leto's character is a parody of his portrayal as the Joker and Marlon Brando's character from the godfather
- it is also a parody of how films nowadays like to have unnecessary crossovers.
The film mostly got Positive to mixed reviews Critics praised it for it's comedy and being a great conclusion to the Trilogy wall some over critics criticized it for trying to copy off of Jump Street's success and also not being as funny as the first two
It has been confirmed that this will be the last film in the Trilogy but two Spin-offs one The Man and The other on the Dude's Daughter are rumored to be happening though the rumors of a Little Lebowski spin-off where debunked when Maisie Williams stated in an interview that the Trilogy is done and that she is not returning to do any more movies if any other ones are made. However a spin-off on the Man could still happen as Bill Murray has interest in doing one if it has a good script. also a Spin-off of a movie revolved around Walter's time in Vietnam is also in talks of happening with Matt Damon Rumored to be playing a younger version of the character.
