HELLO! I was hired and paid as a principal character and have been receiving residuals for the movie "Just Go With it". The role looks like it was extra work because of the title, but it was not. I do have the call sheets and contracts. My scene is in the deleted scenes of the dvd. 
Kindly advise

Hi, Michelle:

I know you won't like this answer (don't kill the messenger Preocupado)...

As gromit has pointed out, the removal of (uncredited) depends on whether your name appears in the on-screen credits, and this is not the case...


Having shown that the (uncredited) attribute is correct, there is yet another problem (the "big one")... Regarding elegibility of uncredited appearances to be listed on IMDb, see this paragraph from the guide:
For cast/acting appearances, you must be identifiable and featured on-screen in the final released cut of the film. In other words, it's not enough to have worked on a production: your scenes must be included in the final cut and it must be possible to easily identify your appearance (i.e. background work as a crowd member or a similar role where it's impossible to recognize the subject are not eligible). If you ended up on the cutting room floor, you are not eligible to be listed.
Therefore, not only your name won't be considered as credited, but, unfortunately, someone might request your acting credit in this film to be permanently deleted. Sorry.
