Question about 2001 Toyota MR2 Spyder
You will need to get someone to help you with this:
1. Have someone push down on the hood while you pull the lever, have then push on the side that opens if they can.
2. If this don't work then you to get a workshop to remove the front underbelly tray and get to the latch from there, your latch cable may have broken.
If you can still feel a bit of pressure on the cable then it won't be broken, it will just be the latch is sticky and once you get it open you will need to spray some lube on it so that it don't jam again.
Let me know if you need more information.

The hood latch is very hard to open without a working cable we know. The real pros opening these devils are bodymen that need to remove wrecked hoods from cars and trucks. They use a J hook which is specially made for broken latches. You can try a coat hanger although they are not very effectived. The coat hanger will need a small J hook shape at one end. The thicker the wire the better. It must loop on the tab the hood cable attaches to. If you can get light in there to see the job will be much easier to do

SOURCE: Broken Hood Release
In short no there isn't, however it's most likely your plastic release lever is broken and not the metal cable, you need to open the cover over the release lever, there will be a cable you can pull using a gripper and it will release the bonnet, you can easily replace the plastic llever and it's reletively cheap.
Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.

SOURCE: Hood latch is pulled open
Have one person pull on the latch inside and the other person pull up on the hood (sometimes depending may have to use a thin screwdriver to pry up carefully not to chip the paint). Once open lube the hood latch under the hood with wd-40. Make sure the latch inside is still connected to the wire.
