THE FULL MONTY: meaning and examples

Good morning. Today we are going to finish our week of expressions related to the word or concept full with a British expression which was used in the title of a popular film several years ago. Although this is not a very common expression, we include it because, due to the film, most people think it means to strip (take your clothes off). You will see that it means something else. Today's expression is: the full monty It means: every possible thing. Example 1 The wedding banquet was the full monty: hors d'ouvres, starters, main dishes, cake, coffee, liqueurs, you name it! Everything was of the highest quality. Example 2 Alright, everyone. I want ideas for our stand at the trade fair. We are going for the full monty; no expenses spared! We will need posters, business cards, presentation folders, gifts...what else? In the film, the main characters took off every possible thing, or item of clothing.
