If the starter just clicks, that's probably due to a dead battery. Try to jump it; if the starter strains but the engine doesn't turn over, then it's seized and probably ruined. If it cranks but wont start, you might have a warped head from the overheating; that's fixable, but may cost more than the engine is worth. However, if the engine does start with the jumper cables on, don't assume you are out of the woods -- it overheated for a reason, and you will have to diagnose and fix that problem before you start driving it again.
