So I Married an Axe Murderer

Charlie, a commitment-phobic beat poet, meets a lovely woman butcher named Harriet. He falls for her, but due to some strange coincidences from her life and a tabloid story, he believes her to be an infamous axe-murderer. After realizing he loves her and doesn't want to throw away this chance, he marries her anyway, but can't shake the question of is she the murderer?

Continuity mistake: After Harriet tells the two Russian sailors off, they walk to the other side of the columns awfully quick considering the short amount of time between the exchange and the next shot of them in the background. They must have run part of the way.

Question: I read somewhere that Mike Myers and Neil Mullarkey contributed a lot of stuff to the script for this movie (which ended up in the final movie), but were denied onscreen writing credit. Why?

Answer: The Writers Guild of America (WGA) determines who is credited and how, so they would have arbitrated this. In 1992, the LA Times reported that several writers had been involved in the script including Myers and Mullarkey, but also Howard Zieff, Barbara Benedek, Sally Robinson, Conan O'Brien and Carrie Fisher. In 1993, the LA Times reported that the WGA had awarded Robbie Fox sole story and screenwriting credit on the film.
