I believe he left it in because he liked how realistic it was. In theaters, no one really noticed when it happened.

I'm pretty sure he says "Wallace", not "Willis". Either way, the Korben Dallas character corrects him by saying, "Dallas". If a character in a movie is called by the wrong name and does not notice, it's probably a slip-up. If he or she does notice it's probably in the script that way. Think about it: If one actor really made a mistake in their dialogue and an other actor noticed and commented about it on screen, it's a good bet that the director would have noticed too and reshot the scene.

Personally, I think that the priest is nervous about having to point a gun at someone, so he calls Korben Dallas "Mr Wallace". But then Dallas, who is ex-military, has no problem with guns being shoved under his nose, so he calmly corrects him by saying "Dallas". This is not a slip-up also because the camera cuts from Ian Holm getting the name wrong straight to Bruce Willis correcting him. And, if at the end of all this, it turns out that it WAS a slip-up, Luc Besson, the director, probably kept it in because he had this kind of thing in mind and thought it would be funny. OK, I'm done now. ---KMeTG

The priest actually says "Sorry to have to resort to these methods Mr. Wallace" not Willis
