Do you mean jittery, smeared crap crap like all major motion pictures?

A problem is that many TVs are not made properly to display 24p. 
Many will upconvert to 30 or 60Hz, which is not ideal, but what DVDs 
already do today.

Otherwise there is no reason why 24p would not look as good as any 
normal motion picture content, and certainly better than 1080/24i when 
displaying content which originates as 24p.
