weakly and effusively sentimental(Merriam-Webster)

I came across this word while reading “You In America” where the reader says: ” After your shift that day, he was waiting outside, leaning by a pole, asking you to go out with him because your name rhymed with hakuna matata and The Lion King was the only maudlin movie he’d ever liked.”
