Not sure where you live, but look at the rotors through the rim. Are the rotors covered in rust? As in where the pads rub? If they are rusted to any degree, that's why you can't move the car. If you can get it into drive, run it in circles in the lot and keep hitting the brakes. That will rub off the rust and you should be able to move it.
