'all you want'


"You can train monsters like this all you want, but you can’t change who they are."

                                                                                 - Monsters Universtiy -


How does all you want in the sentence functions?


1) all you want is an object of train?

2) you want modifies this all? And this all means all of this, right?

3) Monsters in the movie do not care about English grammar?


What do you experts think?


Thank you so much in advance.

I am certain that Mike Wazowski and Sulley don't give a fig about proper grammar, even though they are at university.  ;-)


I think that all you want is modifying train.  How much do you want to train?  All you want.  (as much or as often as you would like to train)  The object of train is monsters
