    I can't agree more/ any more with you.

    1. I can't agree with you more.

    2. I can't agree with you any more.


    Is sentence 2 same with 1 in meaning?


    P.S. Of course I think sentence 1 means I absolutely agree with you while

    sentence 2 implies I don't agree with you.

    Neither of them are very natural, but for me:

    #1 means "I agree with you to my maximum amount of agreement. It would be impossible for me to agree with you to a higher degree".
    #2 means "I am unable to agree with you any longer. I used to agree with you but now I don't, and I don't think I will be able to agree with you in the future on this matter".

    #1 has a more standard form in BrE. If you agree completely with someone, we say "I couldn't agree more".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    #1 has a more standard form in BrE. If you agree completely with someone, we say "I couldn't agree more". Commonly used in AmE too.
