Pack a scene with enough different types of humor and you can't help but get a laugh, says Reginald Hudlin, 30, the director of "Boomerang," the new Eddie Murphy film. He calls it the dense-pack theory of comedy: "Make it highbrow, lowbrow, political, raunchy or smooth, and then you can sneak in anything else you want."That approach and some prickly Afrocentric politics distinguished the 1990 hip-hop movie "House Party," a low-budget surprise hit that introduced the Hudlins -- Reginald and his brother Warrington, 39 -- as major players among the new black filmmakers.
