If it is gas it may be flooded, so when you roll it over put the gas pedal to the floor as far as it will go if it is fuel injected. If you do this it will stop the gas flowing to the engine until you get it started.

A year, make, model, and engine size would help but I will through this at you.
Instead of just trying to start the car turn the key to the run position and wait 3 seconds. Turn the key off and immediately turn the key back to the run position and wait another 3 seconds. Turn the key off then try to start. Do this every time you try to start the car. If you symptom never occurs when you start the vehicle like this than I would suggest taking a closer look at the fuel system.
If the crankshaft doesn't turn engine could be frozen. Try this put a socket on crankshaft bolt and use a breaker bar and try to turn it. The crankshaft should turn it may take a little strength. If it won't turn engine is frozen
try ignition on , dont start engine, press the button on the end of wiper stalk and hold until the speedo and rev needles start sweeping ,wait until they've completed the self test , about 90-120 secs then turn ign off and then start engine and lower roof down then back up
Something you can try is resetting your engine control module via your ignition.... Take and disconnect your battery for say 20 to 30 minutes....Reconnect your battery, turn key to on position, do not start your engine, turn key off, turn back to on position after about 5 minutes, turn back off, Start engine, in some models this is a reset for the engine control module.. Hope it helps.....
turn the key on and wait till the security light stopsflashing ( this could take as long as 30 minuets ) then turn the key off then back on but do not try to start the engine and wait till the security light stops flashing ( again this could take as long as 30 minuets ) then turn key off then turn key on and start engine.
You could have several things wrong with it. first loosen or remove the belt off the front of the engine.then see if it turn over. If it does then your a/c compressor is locked up, you'll have to replace it. If it doesn't hit the starter several times or as some one tries to start it with a hammer or some sort of steel rod. If it tries to start or turn then replace the starter. If it still won't turn the engine may be locked up. you can get a socket on the bolt that holds the balancer pulley on(at the bottom front of the engine) And try to turn it, turn it both ways usually when an engine locks up it will turn one way but not the other. If it turns both ways smoothly then go back to the starter it is probably locked up. Good luck Randy
Try this! Turn key all on (but notrunning) for 30mins., turn off then back on for 10mins., turn off and then back on for 10mins. turn off and then try starting engine. sounds like security system burnt up. may have to replace it.
