I haven't played the new Smash, but in Melee it could be used to block thrown objects, like bombombs, or to interrupt long attacks from a distance, like Donkey kong charging up his punch and stuff like that.
There are probably better uses for it, but I didn't play with her much (unless like you, I felt like being a dick) but those are the only real ones I found. Or you could have a throwing match with another Peach, seeing who gets hit first. That's always fun.
