Stuck Hood, Please help...

Hi. I went to move one of my vans. The battery was dead, so I needed to jump it...

The hood wont open when I pull the release in the cab.
So, I get my son to pull and wiggle the handle while I try to pull and wiggle the hood around, hopeing to pop it open. No luck. I really need to move the van. Can I get at it from the ground under the rad or something? Anyone else figured out this problem yet?

Any sugestions?

Mine gets stuck occasionally, it doesnt open if I pull it open.
But if I push it down, and have a friend pull the release and hold it, it opens after I let the hood go.
A little lube fixes that for me...hope it helps.
