        I'm stale, and tend not to use globals if I can avoid them but...

        Try inserting:

        global mlistLen
        global sourcePath
        global destPath

at this location. I'm presuming your complaint is that mlistLen et al 
aren't updating.

>       textFile = open('movelist')
>       for eachLine in textFile.readlines():
>               source, dest = eachLine.split()
>               sourcePath.append(source)
>               destPath.append(dest)
>               mlistLen += 1
> 
> moveFiles():

        Also insert the global statements (syntax may allow comma separated 
list -- check the docs)

        Alternatively, forget about mlistLen totally and use 

        for x in range(len(sourcePath))
>       for x in range(mlistLen):
>               shutil.copy2(sourcePath[x],destPath[x])
>               
> So, that's the part that doesn't work almost line for line.
