Usage of 'the most of' struture

0

I have learned that

 

1) Most of his movies were funny.   ------------------ Okay

 

2) The most of his movies were funny. --------------Not okay

 

 

3) I spend most of my time studying English. ------- Okay

 

4) I spend the most of my time studying English. ----Not okay

 

People say 'the most of ' structure is not right, but I think that sometimes it can be also used like those examples, #2 and #4, can't it? However, people use 'make the most of' struture, right? Is there a reason why #2 and #4 are not natural to use? 

 

Thank you so much as usual.
