TVH is actually a combination of two scripts put together.
And that's what "mash-up" means in this case. That sentence, taken out of context, is misleading. What you went on to say is more correct:

Bennett wrote the film's beginning and end. Meyer has everything in the middle, including the bulk of the San Francisco scenes, as he used a lot of ideas that were in Time After Time.
But that's not "two scripts put together." That's two authors dividing the labor on a single script. If you'd just left out that first sentence, you would've been fine.
