    As a producer/writer/star maker Apatow wins.

    This. McKay was using Will Ferrell who was already big shit because of SNL. Apatow made Seth Rogan a household name so... wait a minute... you know what? Nah. Fuck him for that.

    Damn near everyone of those McKay films were produced by Judd Apatow
    He wins this without a struggle

    Found it. For context, you can start 2:00.



    Not really a fan of Tripoli but male feminist Apatow should go fuck himself when he went after Louis.

    And the Transformer live action movies were produced by Spielberg, but I'm not blaming him for them.
    McKay was an SNL writer during the Ferrell years and his movies show that.

    David Gordon Green and Evan Goldberg were responsible for a lot of the great comedy of that era too

    A liken it to Beavis and Butthead and Southpark. McKay is the Beavis and Butthead and his movies are funny but I think Apatow movies are like South Park and are better written movies outside of Zohan. I'd give the win to Apatow since his movies have spawned the career of a lot of other funny people, but sometimes I'd rather sit down and watch a McKay movie.
