This trope has become much, '''MUCH''' less stigmatizing in RealLife, however, where the economy has been sending more and more adults back to their parents' homes. [[http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/38364681/ns/business-economy_at_a_crossroads And if this article is any indication, this trope could even become discredited at some point in the future.]]

A stereotypical HollywoodNerd who, [[ManChild despite being a grown adult is still an adolescent]] right down to living with his parents. While the decor of their PosterGalleryBedroom is subject to the tastes of the character, be sure there will be a computer to communicate with the outside world. It's always PlayedForLaughs as an [[AcceptableLifestyleTargets acceptable lifestyle target]]. More importantly, the subject is AlwaysMale. There is much less stigma to a female character living at home - in the past, women were expected to stay with their parents until they married, men were expected to go out and earn money so they could be breadwinners while being shamed if they failed to do so, and these ideas still endure in many cultures today. This makes the trope a DoubleStandard against men (but see below).
