Stuck in Park? Push fairly hard on brake, try it then. There should be an emergency release on the console. EIther a button next to the shifter on the base, a small hole that you can insert something into, nail, paperclip, ect., there may be a quarter size cover on the side of the console, probably on the passenger side. This is assuming there isn't something wrong with the transmission. Depending on where you live I suppose I could conceive of water, snow getting around the shift points on the transmission and freezing. Doubtful, but you might look at the top of the transmission just to rule it out.
