LAT: The studio has apparently toned down the marital issues part [CPLRT], cutting out a subplot involving Jon Favreau, ahem, vigorousl

cheating on his wife with a restaurant waitress.

Judging from the tracking numbers for "Couples Retreat," the Vince Vaughn comedy opening this weekend, Universal Pictures may be having its share of problems persuading moviegoers to rush out to see a film about four couples working out their marriage issues on a Club Med-style vacation at a tropical island retreat.

If you watch the movie's first trailer, which has been up on line for months -- and I have to admit, it did a pretty good job of discouraging me from rushing out to see the movie -- it clearly establishes the Favreau infidelity storyline. Or as Buchanan describes it in blogger-ese: "This is one of the lead characters of a big mainstream comedy, and he's picking up some floozy over hot wings and [having sex with] her in the restaurant bathroom."

But after seeing the film at a recent screening, Buchanan reports that "all those scenes of infidelity in the trailer [including Favreau's wife, Kristin Davis' own fling with her personal trainer] have been cut from the film. ... Both Favreau and Davis still have wandering eyes in the film, but temptation is the couple's main problem rather than onscreen cheating."
