Thanks to too many lawsuits, cars now have a brake pedal interlock to prevent shifting out of park unless the brake pedal is pushed. Since the problem is intermittent, we know it's not caused by a blown brake light fuse. The common suspect would be a misadjusted brake light switch, or the switch has pitted contacts. Try pressing the pedal further, and try releasing and pressing it multiple times.
