Honestly, I know this subject really well...you need to document yourself on how accurate the human brain is because making this sort of statement.
I can see a diff between 24/25 and 29.97fps, all my videophile friends can too. And I regularly play around w/ xfeed on headphones, the brain is EXTREMELY sensitive to delay. the whole soundstage/headstage is solely based on delays.
A good link: http://www.100fps.com/how_many_frames_can_humans_see.htm
There's also a relation between the heartbeat rate and the number of fps you can see...the reason why ppl feel like seconds were hours when they have accidents, or why pigeons always seem to fly away at the very last second...they simply see "more" fps than we do. Cats are the same, they see far more fps than us. I've got links to serious researches to back up everything I say BTW.
Fighter pilots can see up to 100fps, 24fps was chosen because it was the minimum required in order to fool the human brain...but it's hiccupy like hell on slow pans really...there's a good reason why some producers wanna push for 48fps: https://www.google.com/search?q=james+cameron+48fps
You can truly fool the human brain starting from 72fps.
