Jealous of the beautiful mortal Psyche (Susan Ward), goddess of love Aphrodite (Alexandra Tydings) orders her son Cupid (Karl Urban) to shoot Psyche with "love arrows" so that the girl will remove herself from romantic competition. What Aphrodite doesn't know is that Cupid is in love with Psyche himself, which is why he misfires his arrows and hits Hercules (Kevin Sorbo) instead. This proves to be a miscalculation when the smitten Hercules falls for Psyche himself, whereupon Cupid is so consumed by jealousy that he literally transforms into the "Green-Eyed Monster" of the title.
