hot/boiling water, pour it over the door seals and window until the ice melts. Keep doing so until the door mechanisms unfreeze. Be forewarned, if it's going to be cold again while your car is idle, everything is now wet and will probably re-freeze later.

Boiling water + frozen parts; I would be wary of thermal shock breaking a window or something else...

Okay, not boiling, but hot tap should work fine.

Wow.. Bad advice from this one.
its a last ditch effort to open a frozen door lock. I have done it more than once.
