Default help!! can't open hood

please help.
i can't open my hood. i keep tugging on the hood release and it won't release.
as you can expect this can be irritating. i guess after i get it open the best thing is to lube it pretty generously .
please help.

Is the release moving? Have someone try pulling up on the hood as you pull the release.
