It's *nothing* like the book. 

Beatrice Otter:

No, indeed it isn't!

I love this old review of the movie: https://web.archive.org/web/20180509155155/http://doyleandmacdonald.com/r_startro.htm

It's scathing in the extreme, and the last line in particular is great (and true): "Oh yeah—that reminds me.  There's this really neat book with a similar
name.  It's called Starship Troopers,
by Robert A. Heinlein.  Maybe someday
somone will make it into a movie."
