This is a postmodern song and the writer is illustrating the randomness and usually, meaninglessness of the things that connect us in relationships. A half-remembered film that they both "sorta liked" gives them as much common ground as plenty of couples who're still together. His argument's not "I can't live without you," it's more ilke "why not keep hanging out if we don't have anything better to do?"

Now that will really convince a woman to spend the night with you! Now if you want to talk about a lame argument set to music, check out “Stay with Me? by Rod Stewart.

"See! We both kinda liked it. Let's get married!" "Ok!" :) “Well, we did have a good cheeseburer that one time at Burger King”

“Yeah, it was ok.”

“See! We both kinda liked it. Let’s get married!”

“Ok!”

Being as how you married your high school sweetheart (or so I've been told), I assume you have very little, if any, experience with the break-up process. When one person wants to break up and the other doesn't, the rejected person often tries to remind the other of the "good times we had together", whether they ever existed or not, and the person uses what ever they can think of at the moment. Plus, emotionally based arguments often seem lame when one doesn't have the same emotional attachment as the other. Just for the record, I love analyzing song lyric and would have majored in it if such a field of study were available to me. :) It may be a lame argument, but it just strikes me as so normal/realistic.

And yet Bowie is excellent and Deep Blue Something sucks big time. Clarity ain't everything in rock, it would seem.

At least, that's how I've understood the song. “Bohemian Rhapsody” is a song about death, sung in a deliberately operatic way (since operas are always about someone dying tragically).
