This may be a retarded question, retardedgolf, but is she pushing on the brake pedal/pushing in the shifter **** when shes trying to move it?

If the brake lights work when the pedal is pushed. It's probably not the problem.

Is it parked on a hill and loading up the park pawl or is it not unlocking because of the saftey solenoid? Some cars you can hear the solenoid as you push the brake pedal.

Thanks for the reply, it turns out that it was the brake light switch. We replaced it and now everything works as it is suppose to.
