    Wind down the window. Get two strong persons outside of the car to reach inside and grab whatever they can and lift the door. Someone inside then operates the door release handle and gives it a big shove. That just might shift it. Good luck.

    Take it to a body shop nearby. They will have more special tools, including bodywork clamps that they can fasten to the door itself. If it needs a crowbar, they are the best people to do it to avoid a lot of damage. Another idea is to try to get some WD40 into the lock mechanism. Either through the key hole, or down through the window guides (with window down), or if you can pull the door card a bit, and squirt in there.
