Low quality, cheap, inauthentic, crappy; fake. From cheese cloth, the thin cheap fabric used to drain cheese curd, and in the past sometimes used instead for proper cloth in cheap clothing.
(While feeling the fabric of a shirt on the rack) "This one feels a little cheesy." Hence any low-grade or fake product, tangible or not, offered to the public.

A ridiculously bad foosball goal. Most often the perpetrator of such an offense has no foosball skills, and relies on cheating or "flukes" to score.

The most significant use of the term was in 2002 during a series of legendary foosball games at the University of Northern British Columbia a player, having lost a number of games began to shake the table. In his inglorious method of distracting opponents, he began to score goals, even winning some games.

The entire universtiy foosball population began calling his goals cheesy, although the reason remains unclear, especially seeing as he didn't even go to the damn school. Some refer to the goals as cheesy because they "Stink". Other use the term because the player that scored such a fluke of a goal operated a cheese factory on his parents farm. Still others probably came up with it while blazing a fattie.

To this day, poor goals in foosball are known as cheesy, and the term has spread as far as Europe where the French say "Fromage" in the event of poor goal.

Something that is overly cute, sweet, sentimental. In a positive way, yet over the top or trying too hard.
Allen wants to go on a gondola ride on the river with his friend Ariana and sing to her as well. He thought it might sound too cheesy but he suggested it anyway.

1) Any form of entertainment (music, movies) or aesthetic (hair style, photo pose) that the status quo has deemed fully open to ridicule, usually with no explanation. More specifically, the status quo here being that of Generation X. "tacky" and "dated" are closely related words, but far from being exact synonyms.

2) Anything the speaker doesn't like, which makes it an immensely vague adjective

3) A term embraced by young self-proclaimed non-conformists, to hypocritically distinguish what they've been taught to dislike from what they've been taught to like
