It takes a lot more than simply "rendering with mental ray and motion blur to make it look interesting"

You need to learn how it works and what it can do otherwise it going to be a mess.

If you really want to though you may have to load MR in the plug in manager and then select it in the render options drop down menu

I agree with Steve, its a whole other process with a learning curve, you're going to have to buckle down and read through the help docs and do some tuts. I'd say go on ahead and learn MR as it can do whatever the Maya Software renderer can do and more. Also, you're probably not going to find a lot of tuts outside of the help docs focusing on the Software renderer.
