shmaltzy

(redirected from shmalzy)

schmaltzy

Having or characterized by excessive or exaggerated sentimentalism, especially in art, music, or writing. Originally from Yiddish. The film is pretty schmaltzy, to be sure, but it would take a heart of stone not to be moved by it all the same. I'm working on a more literary novel in my spare time, but I pay my bills by writing schmaltzy romance novels.
