Do you mean you can't shift out of park or do you mean you put it in reverse or drive, and nothing happens?

If you are able to move the shifter into reverse/drive but nothing is happening, the first thing I normally look at is the transmission fluid level. Low fluid levels can cause issues with shifting. Otherwise, some diagnosis is needed. It could be shift linkage related or another issue related to the transmission
