No, not the Marx brother but the 1997 movie Gummo by Harmony Korine. Surely it has been discussed here? In any case, I haven't seen it in ages but have been thinking 'bout it recently. Came across this interesting review/take on the film:

Werner Herzog's comment on Gummo:
 
In the scene where Solomon's eating spagetti in the bath, there's a piece of bacon taped to the wall behind him. Says Werner Herzog: "When I saw a piece of fried bacon fixed to the bathroom wall in Gummo, it knocked me off my chair.  Harmony Korine is a very clear voice of a generation of filmmakers that is taking a new position. It's not going to dominate world cinema, but so what?"

At one point I think that Chloë Sevigny and Harmony Korine were a romantic couple in real life.

 

Chloe was also in my favorite Whit Stillman film. I love his films -- TCM showed two of them recently, but not my fave -- The Last Days of Disco. Btw, I was thinking of putting this clip from Gummo up in the Off-Topic "Cats" thread, but that would be too too wicked of me (so I won't):
