Car Stuck In Park on 2000 Acura TL

Tonight is my siblings' prom and when my brother went to leave for the night, the car wouldn't shift out of park. This was the first time it happened. I rocked the car a bit, he turned the wheels a couple times, and the car started; however, when he picked up his date and went to leave, the same thing happened. Anyone know what's going on???

Check the brake lights to see if they work. If not, the brake light switch (which also releases the shifter) could be failing. OR the wiring connector at the switch could be faulty. This is where I would focus my attention.
