Any theatric or cinematic style intended to overwhelm the viewer with a sense of pity or sympathy. An over-the-top version of pulling at one's heart strings. A tear-jerker on steroids ... Quite possibly done in a very formulaic style.
My girlfriend loves that show "intervention". She is SO addicted to pity porn.
