My husband and I went to see Snow White and the Huntsman tonight, and it sparked a memory in both of us of a scene from a different fantasy movie/TV show, but neither of us can place it.

What we remember is that the main character needs to cross a bridge, in which trolls or goblins live underneath. They leave a pile of gold coins (and maybe rubies?) on a stone pedestal thing on the bridge, and the troll lets them cross. However when the main character get to the other side, he/she is ambushed. Takes place in a forest.

We would have seen this somewhere between 1–6 years ago, however after thinking about it for a while, I'm not sure if it was something we rented, or saw in the theater. So it might be older than 6 years. I hope this sounds familiar to someone.

It actually sounds very-much like a plot from one of the episodes of the TV show "Once Upon a Time". It also involves Snow White, so that may have helped trigger the memory.
