(adj.) Having a sappy, cheap, or vulgar quality contrary to that which is intended.
Barbara Walters television specials are notorious for cheesy close-ups that include high filtering, pastel-saturated light, and sometimes flowers.

Context & Arguments: This is the most terse definition I and a friend could devise for the benefit of a foreigner wishing to avoid grouping 'cheesy' with words such as 'campy' or 'kitsch,' which, unlike 'cheesy,' both retain an auspicious and fun quality.

The show was really good. So they made a bunch of cheesy copies that were really bad and were nothing like the original.
