Where's Joss' credit for X-Men? I don't quite know what the rules are here, so please just delete this if it's inappropriate -- but I wanted to ask the whedonesque community a question. We all know that Joss worked on some big movies, but where are the credits?

I recently watched the X-Men 1.5 DVD and at the part where Wolverine says to Cyclops "you're a dick" the director says "that line always gets a laugh" but I was waiting for him to say "Joss Whedon, the genius who created Buffy, wrote that line".
I know that Joss wrote it because he says so in that great Onion Av Club interview. He also worked on "Speed" and "Toy Story", right?
He gets one of the eight writing credits for Toy Story, but isn't mentioned in the credits of Speed at all.
I guess I'm really asking how Hollywood works when so many writers are involved in a project -- and, if I'm trying to win over a Buffy-Skeptic by name-checking Joss' writing on Speed, etc., what do I say when they look it up and say "no he didn't"?
And is Joss breaking some kind of industry code of silence by talking about his uncredited work on these movies?
