Kristin Davis and Jon Favreau in Couples RetreatInfidelity, in any context, is always a risk, and coming off a summer in which almost nothing went right, Universal Pictures seems to be in no mood to gamble with its new romantic comedy, 'Couples Retreat.'

Indeed, trailers presented over the summer for the movie, written by and starring 'Swingers' duo Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn, showed Favreau's married character cheating on his wife with a waitress (in an Applebee's bathroom stall, no less -- classy!), while the missus ('Sex and the City''s Kristin Davis) simultaneously cuckolds him with her "glutes-blasting" trainer.

However, when Universal screened the movie for press earlier this week, infidelity was only alluded to. The cheating scenes have been completely cut out of the finished movie.

However, when Universal screened the movie for press earlier this week, infidelity was only alluded to. The cheating scenes have been completely cut out of the finished movie.

According to a Universal exec who didn't wish to be named, the edits weren't made for fear of any "Lettermangate"-like backlash."Some of the scenes had to be clipped because we wanted a PG-13 movie," the exec said. "Marketing materials are made very early, and very often they don't make it into the finished movie."

The exec adds that just because the illicit cheating scenes were cut, "There's still no way that you wouldn't know that their marriage is in trouble. The story hasn't been changed."

The only widely released movie debuting this weekend, 'Couples Retreat' is predicted to challenge incumbent box office champion 'Zombieland' for theatrical supremacy. And coming off a summer marred by costly flops including 'Land of the Lost' and 'Funny People,' Universal could really use some supremacy right about now.
