I have a 2001 sunfire 2.2L. I have same problem all the time, when it runs out of gas or just gets really low, or even sits for awhile. I usually either change spark plugs (there $6 each btw), or use starter fluid or just keep trying to start it until eventually it starts. I've also made it a practice to replace the fuel filter. Its a pain in the *** but usually seems to help.
The solution already on here is pretty darn interesting and easy. I'll give that a try if it happens again.

Try this, just cycle the key but don't crank it. this will allow the fuel pump to move the fuel up the line. also take a screw driver and remove the big black hose from the air filter box. pore a little fuel in the hose and reattach. keep cycling the key a couple of times. each time you turn key wait 10 seconds and switch off. doe this 10 times. then try and start the vehicle. keep me posted ...rate this please...........thanks

Check and see if the fuel pump is coming on when you turn on the key
