Silly question, but is it actually unlocked?

Sometimes a loose or oddly positioned inside handle can cause the mechanism to lock when the the door is slammed shut.
Nothing you'd ever detect via the inside handle of course as moving it one way locks it and moving it the other opens the door, but it can certainly effect how the outer handle works.

If it's not that, and using the key doesn't do anything, then it may be time to pull the doorskin and inspect the linkage rods that tie the outer handle to the latch mechanism.

Door Handle

The tab on the latch mechanism that the handle pushes against can get bent inward. Then the handle doesn't have enough 'travel' to operate. Only way to fix is to pull the door panel to get at the tab.
