Connect up some jump leads or a starter pack and see if you get red lights on the dash board. Then if you do get dash lights, turn the key to the start position and listen for a click. If there are no clicks coming from the starter motor then this means that the starter motor may be at fault. If you do get a click or similar, then as the poster above says, the engine may be slightly siezed. If this is the case, here is what to try: put the car into FIRST GEAR and then get out of the car and go to the front and ROCK the car back and forth. The fact it is in gear will stop it from moving but the action of doing this will free up the engine. It is an old trick for sorting this problem out.
If you are still stuck after this, please post back. One of the most important things we are looking for here is noises from the starter motor IF you get red lights on the dash board.
Also, when jump starting, it's not really a good idea to rev the bollocks off of the donor cars engine, as it can cause over-voltage to occur and damage to wiring looms may ensue, which is very expensive indeed.
PROTIP: When jump starting MODERN CARS (manufactured in the last 10-15 years) after attaching the jump leads to the faulty car, SWITCH ON THE HEAD LIGHTS OF THE FAULTY CAR, this will stop any damage occurring to the cars ECU (electronic control unit). This is a technique I was taught when working as a trade plate driver delivering lorries and tractor units. The act of switching on the lights helps to prevent an overvoltage occurring.
