Can you open it from the inside(hoping it's just one door)? If so then its probably the latch in the outside door handle thats broken or really really loose. If you can, and I'm not telling you to do this, get inside the door itself and see if you can't find the solution there.

neither door will open, but i know its from different reasons (passenger door was tried to be broken into once and it screwed things up inside)... im jsut concerned with the driver door at the moment, as for getting in, ive been going through the trunk... (this is a project in the works, the car is not on the road and i only bought it a few days ago.)
