Default Funky acting tranny

Got a2001 cruzer auto tranmission the problem is you put it in drive won,t go if you bring the r.p.m,s up 4or5hundred above idle it wil take and go thru the gears like it should and as long as you leave it in drive it works great if you stop and put it in park or nuetral it will act up again reverse no problem works just fine it,s only the forward gears checked fluid level full any ideas? I was thinking maybe the filter is plugged but it's funny it only does it in forward and not reverse.

Not sure it's my daughter inlaws car but I have to do the work on it. I think there's around 120,000 on it she bought it used so I don't know when or if it's been changed the fluid looks good

New info it's a2002 not an 01 it has 90,000 miles on it the tranny fluid & filter was supposedly changed @ 70,000 the problem with that is I know the dealer she bought it from and he is shall we say a little shady so assuming he did change it it's only been 20,000
