Androgyny may affect the way we dress, the way we wear our hair, even the names we give our children. But it has yet to affect our movies. A current case in point is "Notting Hill," the Julia Roberts-Hugh Grant film now in theaters everywhere. Although Germaine Greer may be offended by the term, it's a chick flick. When I saw it earlier this week at the Sherman Oaks Cinemas, three out of four patrons were women. The handful of men sat awash in a sea of estrogen.

"I challenge anyone not to stand out in a pair of underpants like that," Ifans says by phone from London, referring to the minimal gray briefs he wears while posing and flexing his rather puny derriere in front of a horde of paparazzi. "They are magic pants," Ifans adds, laughing.
